Today I'm sharing one of the samples that I've made for my Vintage Inventor shows on January 5th.
I stamped Mr. Inventor (Creative Expressions Vintage Inventor Stamp Set) onto some white card using Jet Black Archival Ink and cut him out leaving a thin white border. I stamped the Creative Expressions Scattered Words stamp onto white card with the Jet Black Archival and cut it out using an oval nestie. I inked around the edges with Weathered Wood Distress Ink while still in the die. I cut a faux nestie out in black card.
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Vintage Illusion stamp set again in Jet Black archival. I hadn't got quite the right size of oval nestie for this so I drew around the nearest size and cut it out. I inked around the edges with Weathered Wood. I cut a black mat out using an oval nestie.
I stamped the cogs (from Vintage Illusion) using Jet Black Archival and embossed them with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder and cut them out. I added a Creative Expressions Faux Screw Brad in Antique Silver to each one.
The background paper is Craft Creations. I stamped 'STEAMPUNK' from the Vintage Illusion set in Black Soot Distress Ink all over it to add a bit of interest.
For the black background panel I embossed some black card using the That Special Touch Cogs Mask and sanded it a little (Colorcore card would work really well here but I didn't have any).
For the grey background panel I simply inked through the That Special Touch Metal Effect Mask with Black Soot Distress Ink.
I assembled the card as shown adding some black ric-rac ribbon and some faux stitching.
Hope you like it.
