Today I was in a mood to just pull out stamps and embossing powders and play!
Stampendous stamps (Cling Gear head, Cling Clock Works, Guys and Gears Perfectly Clear stamps, Steampunk Gears Perfectly Clear stamps) and Stampendous Aged Embossing Powders
I love adding a distressed feel to my backgrounds, by placing down a small piece of dry wall mesh and inking over top of it. When you pull the dry wall mesh up you are left with a cool grid effect.
To create the gears, I stamped some gears on cardstock, cut them out and inked them up with Versamark. Next I covered them in Aged Silver EP,....and proceeded to drop it on my hand after heating. Ouch! To remove the handprint texture ;) I reheated the gears again and presssed a piece of mesh into the EP while it was hot.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
- Simon Says Stamps- sketch
- Kaboodle Doodles- embossing
- Lets Ink it Up- distressing
- Crazy 4 Challenges- add black
- the Stamp Man- shabby chic or Distressed
