I know it's been quiet on the blog, but I do post a bit more on Instagram if you want to follow me over there.
I'm back with another project created for TopFlight Stamps. I have been really into creating oversized cards lately. This one measures just over 5x7. I started with a piece of precut mixed media heavy stock and used Distress Oxide Sprays in Peeled Paint, Abandoned Coral, and Peacock Feathers.
Studio Light Grunge Collection to add the yellow numbers in the background.
It's pretty cool that they blend in even though I didn't use any yellow for the original background colors. I went back in with the stencil and using Distress Ink in Brushed Corduroy added more of the numbers. I finished the background with a touch of DecoArt Metallic Lustre Paste in Brilliant Turquoise on the every edge of the paper.
The focal image is from the Steampunkesque set from IndigoBlu. I stamped the lady using Black Soot Archival Ink and then colored her using Distress Inks and my waterbrush. I added glossy accents to the glasses and light bulb. Once everything was dry I fussy cut her and added a halo behind her using a 3d impresslit.
I had to position her on the paper to see how I wanted to add my sentiment and just decided to stamp it right on the background using Black Soot Archival ink. The ink goes right over the embossing powder. I used my stamp platform to be sure I got a good dark image. The sentiment stamp is also from the Steampunkesque set.
To complete the card I used used plain brown card stock and a couple sheets of Distress cardstock. A bit of scribbling with my gel pen in random spots made it feel finished.
I hope you enjoyed my card.
