Be Unique

Hi Bloggers,

Today I'm sharing this card made with the Creative Expressions Steampunk Shoes Stamp Set designed by Sam Poole.

I made this card when I first got the stamp set a couple of months and I'm a bit uncertain as to how I made the background so here's my best guess!

I inked up a piece of white card with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I also 'stamped' with the ink pad across the card. I then misted it with Antique Rose and Patina Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mists. I made sure the background was dry and then dusted it with my anti-static bag. I inked the Cogs Mask with Perfect Medium and popped my background face down onto it. I ran this through the Grand Calibur. The ink transferred to the deboss. I then brushed Silver Lustre Mica Powder from the Metallics Mica Spray Set all over the pattern.

I stamped the shoes using Jet Black Archival onto some white card I had spritzed with the Antique Rose and Patina Vintage Mists. I embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I added a bit of colour to the shoes using Denim Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Ink. I added some Creative Expressions Faux Screw Brads in Antique Silver

I inked up some Cotton Hemp Ribbon with the Faded Jeans Distress Ink and stamped some bolts onto it using Jet Black Archival. I tied 2 lengths of it into a bow and added an Idea-ology Sprocket Gear and Game Spinner.

I melted some Cosmic Shimmer UT Vintage Luna White and then poured it onto my craft sheet. I inked up the sentiment with Jet Black Archival and stamped into the UT.

I assembled the card as shown. Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.
