Flower Inkognito

Inkognito flower

I used fossalized amber,abandoned coral and salty ocean distress inks to colour the background, and brushed pewter spray to add the splatters. Inkognito Flower by Visible Image was stamped and heat embossed with black and a little silver for the center of the flower. Matting onto black finishes this card off. A quick and easy card, I hope you like it.



Heart INKognito

VI heart

I was playing with my Distress stains and made the background for this card, it was such a delicate colour I thought a heart would suit…. this one is called Heart INKognito and is by Visible Image. I heat embossed the heart and the sentiment also from Visible Image, the set is called sunshine set. I matted this onto some embossed silver mirror card, embossing mirror card makes it a little more gentle ? try it and let me know what you think.  The patterned paper was from my stash which I used to cover the card blank, and also to cut a band using part of a bow die set by Sue Wilson from Creative Expression.  I added a little metal heart charm and some pink liquid pearls to finish. I hope you like it.

Perfect Hair

Joels mirror 2

I have made this for a friends son who is particular about his hair 🙂

Using a Candy Box mirror frame as a base, I embossed black card and glued on using Collall tacky glue adding Pebeo Gilding Wax in Empire Gold,Silver and Renaissance Gold. These waxes are so soft and go such a long way, and…… they smell good ! I added “bits and bobs” and the words, thanks to Jayne Barker who came up with the “perfect” words via Facebook.

Well thats one Christmas pressie done !

Just to brighten your day


A fun card today using Visible Image’s “Splat” stamp.

The colours I used are Mermaid Lagoon, Fossilized Amber, Abandoned Coral and Cracked Pistachio, (all Distress Inks) On a piece of white card I randomly stamped the different splats in all four colours. Mounting this onto black card helps the colours to “pop”. I used some skinny black ribbon threaded through a die cut shape and attached on the back using red liner tape. The sentiment is also from Visible Image called “Chandelier set” which I inked up using a peice of sponge so I could add the different colours. A little blending onto the edges of a card blank again using all four colours completes this quick and easy card.
