Vintage Inventor at Sunday Sketch & Stamp

Hi Bloggers,

Today I'm sharing my entry into this weeks Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge . I'm using Mr. Inventor again as I'm still prepping for the shows on Saturday.

The background paper is My Mind's Eye Lost & Found. I've added some cogs from the Vintage Treasures stamp set which I stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink. I also added some Barn Door Distress Ink around the edges of the backing paper using Cut & Dry Foam.

I didn't have the colour card I wanted for the mat for the backing paper so I inked up some ivory card with Old Paper Distress Ink - just around the edges with Cut & Dry Foam.

I stamped the Creative Expressions Scattered Words stamp onto ivory card using Old Paper Distress Ink and embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I trimmed the image and then cut it in half.

I then used the faux batik method (described in yesterday's post) to create the border in the middle. I used a cog stamp from the Vintage Illusion stamp set and the spring from the Vintage Inventor stamp set. I brayered with Barn Door Distress ink and once dry I edged the panel with Barn Door and Cut & Dry Foam.

I popped some ivory card inside the Creative Expressions Brick Embossing Folder and put it through the Grand Calibur. I tore the card around the edges of the bricks and inked with Old Paper Distress Ink and Cut & Dry Foam.

I stamped Mr. Inventor onto red card using Jet Black Archival Ink and cut him out leaving a thin border all around the edge.

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 -
