Steampunk Fathers Day card
Today I'm sharing a card I made for our IndigoBlu Fathers Day Blog Hop. The Design Team have created some wonderful cards to showcase a wide variety of stamps which can be used to create masculine cards. So here's mine.....
Using a sheet of the Indigoblu "Steampunkesque" Mixed Media card I distressed it by giving it a wash of Gesso.
I then stamped the Collectors Edition No.7 Cogs and Gears randomly over the page with the new "Ugly Duckling" translucent acrylic paint. The new colours were recently launched on Hochanda by Lou Withers and they are to die for!
I also stamped Collectors Edition No.2 French Script using the new "Indigoblu" translucent acrylic paint. I didn't use an acrylic block so the effect is more random. The Hot Air Balloon from the "Grand Tour III" was stamped to the right of the page in Stazon "Cloudy Sky"
The map from "Grand Tour II" was stamped in black ink. I then trimmed the card down to layer onto an A6 black card blank.
Using Stazon "Spiced Chai" the map was also stamped onto Rice Paper. An easy way to give this a feathery edge is to wet it with a paint brush and then gently pull it away.
The verse was taken from the "Mindfulness #1" stamp set and stamped in black onto tracing paper. This was layered onto the Rice Paper and a torn piece of black card and stapled together.
Some Cog embellishments were adhered to add the final touch.
