Canvas using stamp from Visible Image

Hi everyone!

I haven`t had the chance to post this earlier. Don`t actually know why, but here it is anyway.

A little while ago, Visible Image had a design team call and i created a canvas for my application. Obviously i didn`t make the team but i had so much fun doing it. Just looove their stamps. They are perfect for mixed media, which i`m totally into, at the moment.

For this canvas i used a special kind of technique to create the texture around the image. Which i will share with you all at a later time. I was thinking about making a tutorial for it. It`s a great technique for building layers and i think it makes great dimension to a project.

All flowers i`ve used are from Prima. Chipboard are from Dusty Attic. All embellies are primed with gesso before spraying them with inks from Lindy`s Stamp Gang, which i looove. They are so shimmery and beautiful. 

The metal pieces is from a norwegian shop called Kort Hobby.

To finish off my canvas i`ve used some bling pieces placed randomly.

Butterfly Inkognito is available here.

Hope you like my creation. Thanks for visiting me.

Mixed media card with Lindy`s Stampgang Sprays

Hi everyone!

This weekend i have enjoyed the company of allmost 80 crafty chicks at Tr√łndersaksa in Trondheim, Norway. We had a totally exciting and amazing time together. Such a talented and amazing bunch of girls. We laughed, talked and not to mention.... crafted long into the small hours. I just really didn`t wanted it to end so soon. Thanks girls, for a fabulous time. See you again next year!!!

Allthough we had a lot of fun, we also had to do what we ultimately were there for....crafting! At this point i only have edited the photo`s of this card i`m going to show you. I had started it a couple of weeks before the convention but i have been so stuck. But as stubborn as i am, i hadn`t given it up yet. And finally i got my craft juices flowing, lol. 

Lately i`ve been playing around with some mixed media. I`m so in love with the sprays from Lindy`s Stamp Gang. The colours i have used here is the August limited edition spray set. Such vibrant an lush colours. Don`t know if you can see it, but the shimmer on the red and lilac colours are just amazing! And i love how this turned out. 

I used some Heavy Gesso from Prima, creating some texture using the Tim Holtz flourish and the "Art is" stencil from Crafters Workshop. Next i stamped with the Grunge Harlequin stamp from Visible Image.

The frame is embossed with powders from Lindy`s. Loved how the green shimmer appeared. 

Other products i have used are chipboard from Dusty Attic, metal from Korthobby here in Norway, Bling from Prima, Bo Bunny and Marianne design. The centre piece is made by myself. I was inspired by Gabrielle Pollacco on the heart and wings. These are made from the Martha Stewart paper clay. 

I have also used flowers i recieved in a kit i bought long ago, so i don`t know the manufacturer. But the wood piece is Prima. 

As a final touch i finished it all off with some glass pearls and micro pearls from Prima. 

I hope you liked my card. And if you have any questions just feel free to ask me. I will help in any way i can.
