Hello friends! Welcome to the weekend! Hope you’re all doing well and have some fun plans! I have some happy craft time planned while hubby works overtime! 🙂
I am SO excited as yesterday afternoon I had time to play and I couldn’t wait to make something to share today with you:
This was something a bit different for me as I don’t believe that I have ever gone in a “steampunk” direction before with my cardmaking, but I had so much fun putting the different metallic, sparkle and shimmer on this!
I started out with a white cardstock base A2 sized and top folding. I took a piece of masking paper and used a circle die to cut out an area. I used the negative of that piece to go over the entire front of the card base. I then took a Stencil along with the sample size glitter glaze from the kit and spread it over the circle opening on the card base. (Set it aside to dry.)
I then took some paper from the kit and used the embossing folder from the kit to get the texture and then sponged one some white Ink to bring out the texture. I also used a circle die cut a bit larger than the circle on the card base to make a frame with it. I attached the silver ribbon from the kit around the bottom of it and then attached the panel over the white card base.
Lastly, I colored the hot air balloon image from the stamp set with not only the Aqua Pigment, but also some other metallic Aqua Pigments like Penny and Brass! The roses were colored as well. There is a cut file for this stamp set, but I decided to just fussy cut around it this time. I popped it up over the card with foam tape. I then took some of the sequins from the kit and attached it randomly to the design.
The photo doesn’t do the sparkle and shimmer justice.
Here’s a closer look at the hot air balloon image along with the pretty sparkle from the Glitter Glaze. I like the different color metallic to play with!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today. I had lots of fun playing around with it and I know that I’m not done yet! I have more ideas floating around in my head that I’d like to try, so stay tuned!
Thanks so much for dropping in today! I appreciate each of you very much and I’ll see you soon!
