Couldn't resist sharing this card with you today. It's one of the samples I'm made for my next show on Create & Craft. It's black & white which I love as it means I don't have to do any colouring!
I sanded some white shrink plastic and stamped the three shoes from the Creative Expressions Steampunk Shoes Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I actually put it aside to dry so I could do something else.
For the background I inked through the Metal Effect Mask with Black Soot Distress Ink using Cut & Dry Foam. As Distress Ink stays wet for a while I was able to sprinkle some Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder over the top and heat set it. I did re-apply the ink and the embossing powder to create more of a tile effect. I then edged the whole piece with a little Black Soot.
I cut 2 pieces of white using the Spellbinders Labels One Small and 1 piece from black. Each time, at the emboss stage, I added the Woodgrain Mask. Remember to keep the cutting edge of the die away from the mask.
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Tags and inked with Black Soot while still in the die.
I carefully cut out my shoes from the shrink plastic leaving a small white border all around the edge. I also made sure that I didn't go far up the heel as experience tells me that little thin bits can be a problem. I used my heat gun on a low setting to shrink the shoes and flattened each one with an acrylic block.
I assembled the card as shown and added a Black Glass Glintz in each corner.
Hope you like the card.
Thanks for stopping by.
