Enjoy the Journey Steampunk Card by Mandy C

What I used:

Tim Holtz Cling Mounted Stamp Set ~ Going Somewhere ~ CMS090
Tim Holtz Cling Mounted Stamp Set ~ Spills and Splatters ~ CMS028
Tim Holtz Cling Mounted Stamp Set ~ BittyGrunge ~ CMS089
Ranger Archival Ink Pad ~ Sepia
Ranger Archival Ink Pad ~Jet Black
StazOn Solvent Ink Pad ~ Stone Gray
StazOn Solvent Ink Pad ~ Timber Brown
ColorboxFluid Chalk Cat's Eye Ink Pad ~ Dark Brown
Turquoise and Tan coloured acrylic paints ~ I used Eco Paints
Kraft square card blank
White Card
Watercolour pencils
Old store/phone card

1.  Take your card, store card and paints. Scrape the paints in different ways across the card, until you are happy with the effect. Once dry (Eco paints dry super fast) choose the piece of card you’d like to use and cut out a 5 inch square.

2.   Using the Sepia Archival, use the long ticket on the ‘Going Somewhere’ plate and   stamp across the card.

3.   Using Staz-on Timber Brown, stamp the punchinella stamp from the ‘Bitty Grunge’  set around the edge of the card. Then using Staz-on Stone Grey, stamp the coffee stains over one edge of the card.

4.   Stamp the Balloon stamp onto white card, cut out and position onto the card and glue in place. Stamp ‘Enjoy the Journey’ sentiment in Black Archival.

5.   Colour the balloon in with watercolours (you may want to do this before you attach to the card in case it warps)

6.    Edge card with chalk ink.

7.    Position and glue onto the card.



  1. It all comes together so beautifully!

  2. I love this stamp, such beautiful colours. xx
