I am excited to share that I will be joining the Topflight Stamps Design Team for the next several months. My first project was really fun to create. I got caught up and didn't take step out photos, but I can walk you through how I created it.
I started by taking a large chipboard tag from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts and covering it with metal foil tape. I ran the tag through my Vagabond using the Mechanics 3d embossing folder from Tim Holtz. I then pounced on PaperArtsy fresco paint in Buff, Toffee, and Green Patina using a foam blending tool. I added a bit of black paint with my finger so I could really control where it went. Once the paint was dry I sanded it off to reveal the metal underneath.
I stamped out the Steampunk man from the Stamperia Capture the Moments Stamp set on Mixed Media Heavystock. I painted it using various colors of Distress Ink and Paints. I added some gears and brads to the reels on the hat. I cut out the hat and using foam tape adhered it to the Found Relative's head. Using the same paint colors I used for the foil tape I added some chipboard wings behind the gentleman. I added a touch of Tarnished Brass Distress paint so they would not blend in completely with the background. The wings are actually a heart shaped piece, from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts, that I cut in half and spun around. I glued the wings to the gentleman's back and then using more foam tape I adhered him to the background.
A few layers of washi tape were added across the bottom of the photo and help draw your eye to the sentiment.
The sentiment is from the same Stamperia stamp set and was given a light wash of Hickory Smoke Distress Ink using a waterbrush. I glued on some Tim Holtz Hardware Heads and adhered the sentiment to the tag.
Have a great day,
