I have another sample to show you today using the new Steampunk Butterfly stamp set from Chocolate Baroque
When I saw the circular fragment, it reminded me of a church window, and I wanted to try and create that effect. After a bit of practising on scrap paper, I managed to achieve a reasonable attempt! I made a background using Distress Inks spritzed with water, then stamped the four sections of the fragment. I needed to mask a small portion off each time, using masking tape, as the fragment is too large otherwise. I then added the two spires from the Gothic Fragments stamp set. I needed to mask a tiny portion of these to then stamp the corners so that they appeared to be behind the spires. I coloured the images in tones of brown, using my Polychromos pencils, and added touches of gold Mica ink.
I stamped a flower from the Bold Bloom stamp set onto acetate, using Stazon, and then added some multi-coloured flakes behind the image. Once this was dry, I added this to the centre of the 'window'. I used fine line masking tape coloured with a black Copic pen to represent the leading on the window.
To complete the background, I used a stamp from the Texture Fragment stamp set, using three different colour Distress Inks, and stamped randomly to create a stone effect. I then used a sentiment from the Artistic Affirmations stamp set in the top corner.
This card is showing over on the Design Team Blog today, but if you keep checking back there will be lots more inspiration from my Design Team mates over the coming days. Thanks for stopping by, xx
The Craft Stamping Quartet blog was set up by myself and three crafting friends when we decided that we wanted to 'craft together'. We live around the country, but keep in touch every day via the Internet. Each month, we choose a project from Craft Stamper magazine, and each make the project, putting our own slant on the project. We then post the finished item on the blog.
Married to Terry, with two children, Megan and Ryan. Born in Sunderland. Living in Norfolk in a beautiful house called Poppy Cottage. Love all kinds of crafting, mostly papercrafts, rubber stamping, and mixed media. I also make and sell jewellery too. I love learning new craft techniques, and have a craft room stuffed to the brim with supplies. I have three cats called Buzz, Poppy and Cody, who insist on getting into everything that I do. When I grow old, I am going to wear purple and become a mad cat lady.
