Lisa Horton is launching a new One Day Special on Hochanda at 6pm. I have made a few samples for the shows so I'm sharing one today -
Craft Sheet has been misted with water and picked up onto a piece of Milk Card. The colours on there are Broken China, Fired Brick and Vintage Photo.
I stamped some cogs from an old very loved stamp set from Creative Expressions Stamp Set called Vintage Inventor using Fired Brick and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide. I placed the Creative Expressions Vintage Diamond Mini Stencil on the bottom right of my background and spread some CS Clear Texture Paste through it. I repeated this in the top left hand side and put aside to dry.
I wondered if the Distress Oxide Ink would ride to the surface of the Texture Paste but it did not - this could have been because the background ink had been really dry (from a demo). If it had just been made then perhaps some of the ink might have moved in the Texture Paste? Something to try!
Once my Texture Paste was dry, I placed the Mini Stencil back on top and inked through with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide to make the design a bit more prominent.
Woodware Edge Crimper and then edged with Vintage Photo and Fired Brick Distress Oxides. I matted onto Black Card and then Milk Card.
Industrial Chic Background out of Milk Card twice.
Industrial Chic Frame & Tag Die Set out of Chestnut Card. I cut the Ransom Note Birthday Die out of some more of my mopped up ink card.
Flourish Pop-em with Tarnished Silver CS Shimmer Paint. I added Marigold CS Metallic Lustre Paint - I added a good thick coat. I heated it and it bubbled a bit. I then added some Chocolate Gold CS Metallic Lustre Paint - again quite a thick coat. I heated it and it bubbled some more. Looks good, doesn't it?
Industrial Chic Mixed Essentials Die Set out of Black Gloss Card.

Love June Horrocks xxxx
Morning Julia, Oh Yes !!!! I absolutely love this, the background is stunning as are the die-cuts, I'm a steampunk obsessive so these Industrial Chic dies are a definite 'must have'. I love all the textures and colours, stunning !!ReplyDelete
Lots of love from Patricia xx
My iPad keeps locking me out of yours and Sue's blogs... can't understand why. Think it might be dying after six years!!ReplyDelete
Anyway....... love this card. I didn't think I would be so taken by steam punk designs but I guess a parchment craft design I did a few years ago introduced me to the beauty of it. Agree with Patricia above about the gorgeous textures and colours.
PS?.. hope we we will see some snaps of your beading work next week, trust it has been a great week for you all.
Hi Julia this is a stunning card I love the design and the dies are fabulous. Take care. Hugs JackieReplyDelete

Hi Julia fantastic card I love itReplyDelete
Hi Julia, such a fab card, and a great way to tie the background together with the sentiment using the same coloured piece. BxReplyDelete
You always make the most efficient use of your supplies and come up with stellar results. The tag and grant and birthday dies were my favorites of the IC portion of the launch.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing!
Tag and frame? My phone reads my mind to my dismay...ReplyDelete
