I decided that this post should be a celebration of my Visible Image work up til now. I have many of their wonderful stamps and use them a lot in my crafting, as you will have seen here on my blog.
The first stamp I ever bought from them was a little snow scene, many (?10) years ago on Ebay. In fact it was the first "clear" stamp I owned as up til then rubber stamps were "rubber" stamps. Over the years they have brought out so many brilliant designs. Mark and Helen Alexander own the company and I met them in person a few years back at Alexandra Palace stamping show. They really are such a delightful couple; hardworking and passionate about their stamps. Their so deserve their success.
Looking through my photo archive I have made so many projects using their stamps that it was hard to choose just a few. Obviously some of these stamps are now discontinued. My cards, using their stamps, also sell well down at Dotty's Tea Rooms, including the one below...such a brilliant camera stamp. The sentiment and butterfly stamps are VI too.
This one was from our visit to the Shard in January..and I used my favourite of their current stamps, the amazing eye; Vision INKognito
Moment below was inspired by our Bombay Sapphire Distillery visit.
which I used in my Sicily journal last year.

You can see the creative process here.
Vision INKognito. I also wanted to share some love, so hearts featured too. I also had the idea of my heart "soaring" with excitement for the days ahead. Here is what I came up with.
I added my hearts using texture paste through my TH heart stencil. I used red and blue Gelatos for my inky background. My heart die cuts are Memory Box.Like my favourite Christmas card, where I made the hair from something very different (pine leaf die cuts) I used the wings from their awesome butterflies as eyelashes and also to "fly" my soaring heart
I would like also like to link up my Moment with the following challenges;
