Good morning, I hope that you are all finding a way to stay cool. For me that means staying indoors and playing with all of my crafty goodies. Our Christmas challenge had so many gorgeous Christmas cards so maybe we are all trying to think our way to cool.
Today is Friday and not only does that mean that it is the start of the weekend but it is also the start of another Stamp Something challenge. Our challenge this week is to Stamp Something Embellished.
Our Sponsor this week is Sugar Nellie Stamps and they have generously offered up 4 Sugar Nellie Stamps to one lucky participant.
I decided that this week I would try a vintage steampunk feel for my card which features Lil Victorian Lilith from Tickled Pink Stamps. The image was coloured with Copics and I have used some distress inks and along with a text stamp and a grunge floral to add so interest to the edges of the image block.
For the background I have used this great paper from the Basic Grey Curio collection which I tore and inked to give a burned look to reveal the newspaper print below. I have stitched the layers and distressed the edges to add to the timeworn feel. If you look closely in the bottom left corner you will see where I have masked and inked a vintage compass onto my background papers.
There are so many different embellishments layered onto this card. All of the flowers are from my newly replenished supply from Wild Orchid Crafts. Behind the flowers on the left of the image there is part of a Prima rhinestone swirl. For some additional steampunk flair I have also added in some Tim Holtz sprockets and gears. There is also just a touch of ribbon and a birthday sentiment that I picked up in the dollar bins at Michael's.
I hope that you will join us with your own embellished somethings.
