Hello to all! I have been on holiday from work this week so I have been spending some quality crafting time (despite the bad weather) with various bits and bobs. While most of what I have been doing has just been playing, I was inspired by a fellow crafter to create a project that was a little more ambitious than a single card front; et voila!
The top picture is of the card closed, it then opens out into an extended concertina card as pictured below
The majority of the elements are from Sheena Douglass’ Time Traveller range, but I have added in a couple of extra bits 😉
From the new ‘Call of The Wild’ Range by Sheena Douglass
This is the image stamped; heat embossed and then fussy cut (as I do not yet have the matching die) I have then coloured it using distress inks and a little bit of spectrum sparkle with a finishing touch of Twinkling H2O for the white bits of the feathers. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and the torn edges on both this and all of the other torn edges in this piece are created using a deckle edge tearing ruler.
Section one is the time machine balloon die which is again coloured with spectrum sparkle and distress inks, however I have also used a little gilding wax. I will list all of the colours etc at the bottom of the post.
For Section Two I have used a patterned paper as my base and then added in some chain stamps (For the love of stamps) and a compass die (Tonic). The rest is still the Time Traveller range. I wanted to make the cogs and the ‘Thingamabob’ a little more interesting so I have used a combination of embossing powders and gilding wax to create different looks; I have also used some Frantage embossing powder (this is a thicker powder) which has given the mottled effect on the ‘Thingamabob’. As I was covering most of this is embossing powder I didn’t put much effort into colouring it; it is mostly a distress ink wash although I have used pencils to colour the fin and the umbrella.
Section Three is a pocket with a blank tag for a personal message; the quill and inkpot are also Sheena Stamps but from the 2016 Christmas range.
Section Four is very similar to Section two; again I have used a patterned base card and then embellished it; the clocks and cogs are embossed the same way as in section two, with the pocket watch face being coloured with distress ink.
Section Five is what the whole project was based on!
I coloured this Time Traveller lady several months ago now but couldn’t decide how to place her. Hopefully, this project will have done justice to the beauty of this stamp 🙂
