I just love that Sam Poole put a 'Thingamajig' text stamp on her Vintage Inventor stamp set. What a fantastic word that is - can be used in so many situations!
Anyway, this is the card I'm sharing today which I've made for the show I'm doing on Create & Craft on Saturday.
First I put some Vintage Photo Distress Stain onto a spare piece of Craft Sheet and I added some Artist Spackle and mixed until the colour was blended evenly. Then I spread the dyed spackle onto a piece of card. I used a squeege tool to make it fairly even. Next I inked up the Creative Expressions Plaid stamp with Coffee Archival Ink and stamped into the Artist Spackle. I carefully removed the stamp and cleaned it thoroughly in warm soapy water and set the stamped spackle aside to dry. Cool, eh?
For my main background I ran some white card through the Grand Calibur with the That Special Touch Cogs Mask. I increased the size of the background by running though a second time making sure that the area that was already embossed remained outside of the plates. I then added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink with some Cut & Dry Foam. Using the Vintage Photo Distress Stain I splatted in the centre of each cog.
I stamped the Steam Train from the Vintage Illusion stamp set with Coffee Archival Ink and embossed using Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the background with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I stamped the coloured the sentiment in the same way.
I assembled the card as shown and added some Creative Expressions Faux Screw Brads in Antique Copper.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
