Hi Folks, well I have to apologise for the patchiness of Forgotten Friday over the past few weeks. As you know, I have been travelling here there and everywhere. My little weekly post is the casualty of that travelling I'm afraid. Anyway, I have managed to create something today, so that is a cause for celebration.
I needed to create something along a Steampunk theme, and was rummaging through some of my Chocolate Baroque stamps. I happened across a couple of stamps that I hadn't used, so decided to make something with those, using another one that I had used, but not since I was creating DT samples with the stamps. I made a background stamping the flying clock with Versamark, and embossing it with clear embossing powder. I then coloured the background with Tea Dye Distress Stain, and picked up splodges of ink in various colours over the top, drying each application between the layers. I stamped the words 'Time Flies' with black ink in the gaps. I used some of the left over ink to colour a manilla tag with the wrinkle free distress technique. I embossed a section of a cog mask on a couple of corners of the tag by running it through my Big Shot, and then swiped some Distress ink over the top of the raised areas.
I stamped the beetle onto a spare piece of card, and coloured it with Distress Markers and a water brush, then highlighted the shaded areas with neat markers for depth. I added some cogs and jump rings to the tag, and a couple of stamped words to fit the theme of 'Time Travel'. The word 'Time' comes from a larger stamp taken from the 'Artful Affirmations' stamp set from Chocolate Baroque, if you were wondering.
Why don't you have a rummage through your craft stash and see if you have something forgotten or neglected? Make something and leave a comment on my post, and I'll pop along to take a look.
I am going to enter my card into the Steampunk Junkies challenge. This time around, the theme is Time Travel/Anything Goes.
Thanks for stopping by, xx
