Visible Image Immortal Love


Hi everyone 
Its my Visible Image dt day
iv gone for a kind of clean and simple , but you know me i never do anything to simple lol


i have used the Immortal Love set this is a fab set and really useful i have used the rose and the words lots of time but the barbed wire only a few time so i thought id give it a treat and use it lol
i have used a glossy white card base its 6 x 6 , i then cut a strip of white card and using Fired Brick and Black soot Distress inks i coloured it using  Dream weavers stencil brushes, one it was how i wanted it i spritzed it with water, and dabbed dry with kitchen towel, then edged with the lace.
next i stamped and coloured the rose with spectrum nore markers, the barbe wire was stamped randomly over the rose, then once i had decided where the rose was going i stamped the wire onto the strip to match up, then all the wire was covered in glossy accents, once dry i added the rose with sticky pads to add dimension and give the effect the wire is holding it down.
then the strip is put on the card and the word Forever was stamped using Stazon.

and inside


for the insert i used the rose again but stamped it second generation stamping so it was faded, and then the word love was stamped in black,

and that's it one finished card :)

hope you like it guys, and don't forget you still have a week or so to get your entries into the challenge

so i gets started making it into a card to post yesterday and about lunch time i go to check 
on my daughter who wasn't too good and found her with a high temp and in a lot of pain with 
her throat gets me a light and peeps inside and yeah horrible horrible red & white tonsils, 
so calls the doc and gets her in straight away and as i thought real bad tonsillitis, gets her back 
and into bed, and off i trot to the chemist which is a 30 min walk to and and 30 mins back ,

Visible image...Tala Catching Dreams


hi guys I'm here with my Wednesday 
and this week i was set a challenge by my teamie Pauline :)
the challenge was 3 colours of my choice, 
and


so i chose, turquoise, yellow and purple. i stamped coloured and cut Tala, then i stamped the dragonfly 6 times, and coloured, then covered the wings in deco art triple thick gloss glaze, and sprinkled with glitter.
this was where i got a little stuck! what was i going to do for a background! i looked through all my papers and nothing jumped out at me, then i remembered i had bought my hubby the Encoustic art iron and waxes a good while back, about 2 years or more !! so i thought id have a play and see what i came up with, its a little tricky to get the hang of at first but so much fun . Anyway after some trial and error i finally got a background i liked, now i needed to get the tree in.. humm apparently you cannot stamp on wax even with stazon LOL, OK so that one went in the bin, next i stamped first then waxed...humm not bad but the white wax on the sky showed over the tree making it almost foggy...( now there is an idea for another make ;) )  OK so onto the next try, (I'm getting a bit more confident with the wax by now) so , stamp then wax but using clear wax with a little turquoise and purple wax for the sky, yay! it worked, so now i had my tree, i stamped the word believe and fussy cut  then stuck on the card, next the arrows where stamped and cut and stuck , this was all mounted onto a deep turquoise card base, then Talia was added , and the dragonfly's cut and layered with the top set of wings gently shaped, I'm quite pleased with it though the dragonfly's are a little darker than i wanted but even so they are sparkly and pretty lol.
on the insert i used the dream catcher and the follow your dreams,

hope you like it :)

hi guys!
i have had so much fun making this dt inspiration project for the 
the theme is 
Anything goes Easter
well i went for a Steam punk Easter Bonnet!!
i know i know my mind is a little twisted lol, but i think it kinda works lol


i made the top hat and covered it in some green pattern paper. the hat measured 3.5'' tall and about 5'' across the base.
next i decided to make some steam punk goggles to put on it so first step was to determine their size of the goggle  , then i rolled some cardboard int a tube to the right size and glued. then i cut this tube in half creating the side shape of the goggles as i went, then i cit 2 circles of card slightly larger than the tube, cut the centre out same size as tube for lens and snipping all around the edge i attached to the top of the tube,to cover the join and get the metal frame look i added a strip of card to rim them, once all this was dry i covered it all in tin foil and painted to give the metal effect .
using the faux leather technique i made a nose strap and some side straps, the lenses are cut from acetate and coloured with spectrum noir pens.
then i used tiny flat back pearls as rivets to decorate, and finished with a buckle at the back.
so putting the goggles aside, i set to decorating the hat, and boy did i decorate lol, loads of lace and flowers and pearl stems etc, i made all of the flowers except the yellow roses which where white and i coloured with spectrum's and then dry brushed the copper colour over the petal edges, i cut some cogs and painted to look metal, and stuck them randomly over the hat, the net was added and then the goggles to finish it all off.


i quite like it, and have to admit i do love making these little hats!
but what do you think?

we would love you to come join in with this challenge
