Good morning, I don't know abut you but I'm about all 'Christmassed out' after weeks of making Christmas cards. Anyway the Stamp of the Month over at Chocolate Baroque is a gorgeous A5 stamp set called Steampunk Butterfly. perfect if you fancy a change from festive projects. There are some fab stamps in this set and I particularly loved these 'batty' wings, and thought they would make a great little canvas.
I stamped the wings on to silver paper with black archival ink, cut them out and applied them to the canvas with matt multi medium. The 'thingamajigss' are from a box of all sorts of bits and pieces I found in the shed and I'd been saving them for a steampunk project. Apparently it is a radio valve (thanks Elaine) . I added some more wings and then 'Let the Adventure Begin' from Artistic Affirmations which I stamped on tissue paper, embossed in silver and applied with multi medium. I then gave the words a coat of rock candy crackle paint:
I edged the canvas with a sparkly mixture of UTEE, silver embossing powder, microbeads and tiny stars which I adhered with more matte multi medium and heat embossed.
I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
Crafts 4 Eternity: blingtastic
Crafty Sentiments: all that glitters
Creative Moments: anything but a card
thanks for popping by
