I'm up on the Blank Page Muge Blog today, sharing my take on this month's theme of Blue Heart and Time.
I started by cutting three small tags out on my Sidekick. I stamped and embossed the Heart with small Crackle.
I also stamped and embossed the Steampunk Pocket Watch. I didn't want the wings so I didn't really ink them.
You can see both of these pieces look a little messy. There's embossing powder residue on both pieces and I am ok with that. I like the little speckles and spots the extra powder leaves behind. My work often has powder randomly sprinkled on anyhow.
Using a waterbrush I wet the heart and then sprinkled on watercolor powder. I like using these powders since they aren't a solid color, but flecks of varying shades. I used a crayon to color the outside and then spritzed a black marker to make the speckles.
I added my watch tag between the two halves of the heart and colored it in a similar manner. I glued them together and then added my sentiment stickers. To finish the centerpiece I scribbled around the stickers and stamps using a black pen.
I mounted the tags on top of a piece of distressed cardstock. The distressed piece was adhered to the card base using a tiny stapler.
I hope you enjoyed my step out for today.
