The amazing steampumpkin from Stampendous.

Hi Everyone Dee here with my first ever piece that I made for the 
Stampendous New Catalog & Mixed Media design Team.
I have to say absolutely love this chap!!!

Dreamweaver Stencils
Embossing paste DEPC Copper
Tando Creative 
mixed media boards 
Deco Art Media Paint
Prussian Blue Hue
Quinacridone Gold

Raw Umber
Pyrrole Orange
Quinacridone Red
Transparent Yellow Iron oxide
Black antiquing cream
Texture sand paste
Ultra-Matt Varnish
From my stash 
Flat based Glass bead
Die cut cogs 


1. I Used Tando Creative mixed media boards as the covers for my note book & I cut out enough white card to create a folding book.
2. I put copper embossing paste through the steam punk stencil once dry I painted it with Prussian Blue hue, followed by dry brushing with white  gesso.
3. I painted the pumpkin man with orange/red qu raw umber and metallic paint then washed with quinacridone gold and paynes grey sealed 
inacridone gold,
with mat medium.
4. Crackle paste was put through the spider stencil at top and bottom once dry black antiquing cream was used to highlight the cracks.
5. Outer edges were edged with quinacridone gold followed by treasure gold.
6. Inner pages were folded and washed with transparent yellow oxide outer edges with raw umber Shadows was then stamped on to the washed card.
7. Glass bead, chain and cogs were attached to front of the notebook all assembled and ties together with a leather string.

That's all for today folks will be back with some new post's very soon all products used are in the July catalogue.

Along with opening my creativity to new ideas this hop is costing me a small fortune. Already a big Tando and Stampendous Fan not to mention my Dreamweaver stencil and paste collection I have already arranged to add lots of new items to my stash mountain!. Zoe (Grimsby UK)

I love, love, love these boards! That spider is utterly amazing. The Steam Pumpkin is so cool. The cogs and chain gives him that extra something and the bead monocle is to die for. Couldn't ask for a more perfect notebook. :)

Spookaliscious and totally awesome! I love your book! I really love making books and this is a beauty! Your selection of products used makes this a truly wonderful creation!! I can imagine that, if you pull this out of your bag to write a note when you are out, many will ask you where you got it! Thanks for sharing it with me!

I find I always see a project and think I need that stamp or stencil and just have to have them. Hence my stash is now flowing out of my little craft room.
