I have explored the art of stamping for a number of years. Recently I have been exploring social media as a way of exposing my ideas to a wider audience. I have a passion for colours, whether that's through inks, paints, pencils or pens. I like to include textures to my work to add depth.
A mixed media piece
Wednesday, 13 August 2014
Hi everyone! today I have had loads of fun creating this piece.
I must say I really enjoyed it.
Firstly I had used a Tim Holtz Die to cut the top out of grey board.
I then cut white card and stuck it onto cardboard to strengthen.
Next I used distress inks blended onto the card. Once satisfied I then flicked
water over the surface.
I then used Tim Holtz number stamp in different inks and angles over the
the distressed card.
Next I used the spider web stencil from Tim's stencils and sponged
Frayed Burlap ink through the stencil.
I then took my Steampunk stamps and randomly stamped over the card.
I cut a piece of foam board to fit underneath to lift the whole piece to give
depth not forgetting to paint the sides with black acrylic.
I had inked and stamped the ruler onto separate card and cut out to fit.
The steam punk wings were stamped onto fresco painted card stock with
Stazon black ink.
Two further cogs stamps were stamped onto the Fresco painted card.
One was placed under the steampunk wings.
Watch parts and cogs from my stash were used over the top.
The steampunk banner was stamped onto black card and embossed with
pewter embossing powder. Then backed onto craft card that
was distressed around the sides.
The second cog image one was part embossed and then cut out and placed
on the bottom.
Over this I glued the second ruler image.
Then glued small cogs over the image and the ruler.
the edges i finished of with pewter Treasure gold, after they had been
distressed with a blade.
Finally brads were placed in the bottom corners.
I hope you all enjoyed reading this post. I think I am now finally
getting better and hope to be back to my job soon.
