Another post scheduled on the ipad. I may have to go out and buy another machine as I'm getting desperate now.
You may see a few of the samples I've made for the Pick of the Day next Tuesday on a little video on either C & C or Ideal World as a preview. Let me know if you spot them. I'm a bit nervous about letting them out of my sight. I just hope I get them back for the shows!
Today's card was based on one I spotted that Sam had made. I'm not really happy with it. It's a bit flat. Sam's is much better. I thought I'd share it anyway - please be kind!
This card is all about the background. On some white card I spritzed some Dark Spice from the Winter Garden Misting Ink set. I then took the nozzle out of the Black Night Mister and splatted them over the background. I randomly stamped some of the images from the Urban Beats, Urban Life and Silhouette Skateboard stamp sets using various distress inks. I also stamped 'jake 14' from Sam's Vintage Alphabet and Mini Alpha Stamp Sets in Jet Black Archival (I don't know anyone called Jake by the way). I then popped the piece through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Brick Embossing Folder. I tore around the edges and inked with Pumice Stone Distress Ink using Cut N Dry Foam. I sanded it to reveal the white core of the card.
I stamped the aerosal can from the Urban Life Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I added a couple of Idea-ology Sprocket Gears and a Faux Screw brad. I added the wall to some craft card and drew some lines around it with a black fineliner. I wrapped some black baker's twine around the card and added a button.
I also added some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.
