I have a little bit of steampunk for you this week using another of the recently released stamps from Carabelle Studio.
Here’s What I did:-
I started with my favourite surface a sheet of mixed media card. I then took the clockwork stencil and misted it lightly with water onto that I then sprinkled on brown and grey Brusho Crystals another light misting of water and then lay my card over it so I would be using the mask as a stamp, I like the fact that you get a random print from the mask/stencil. I then stamped the heart over the stencil print and a little additional stamping in the corners.
I then coloured the heart using Spectrum Noir pencils blending the colours together with the blending solution and paper stumps.
These pencils blend together seamlessly with the solution and stumps.
I then added Ranger Crackle Accents to the bulb and the dial.
You can see how it gives the effect that the glass is cracked.
Whilst I left the Crackle Accents to dry, I leave it overnight. I prepared the background it would sit on.
I started with an A4 piece of copper metallic card and embossed it using an 8 x 8 hessian embossing folder then ran it through my A4 die cutting machine (you will need an A4 machine for this size of folder but you can get a smaller version for smaller machines).
Once embossed I needed to age/rust up the card and did so by layering on suitable colours from the PaperArtsy Fresco finish paint range, these paints have a matt chalky finish. When this was dry I cut it to the correct size to add my stamped piece to.
All was then mounted onto black card and then an 8x8 card blank.
What I used:-
Big Shot Plus (or any A4 die cutting machine)
8” x 8” Card Blank
Hope you have a great week and see you next Tuesday
