I must apologise for my absence....but I have a rather demanding job which occasionally prevents me from visiting you, never mind posting. Think I am back on track now and I look forward to catching up with you all.
Below is a card that I made for my son to give to his cousin on her 21st Birthday. (I made her a canvas with a key, which you can view in the previous post )
I just can't believe that my niece is now 21..........time just passes so quickly !!! ( okay...... I guess it makes me realise I am older too !!
The Steampunk stamp set, which comprises of the body form, butterfly and bee are designed by Sam Poole from Creative Studio's. I so love Sam's designs as they are right up my street. ( After cutting the stamped images out I blended the body form and stamps with a combination of Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Salty Ocean DI's) I like to ensure that there are no white edges on my projects and always edge with ink or a marker, charcoal pencil as it gives a better finish.
I used a Spellbinders die, edged with DI in Vintage photo and the TH Sizzix Bigz die, ( Weathered Clock), which I blended with a combination of walnut stain and salty ocean.
The numbers were cut using the TH Wordpad die from Sizzix.
The winged Steampunk bodice, butterfly and bee are all raised off the paper to give a lovely effect.
Certainly a sentimental keepsake that my niece will treasure.
