Images were stamped with Versafine. White charcoals were used to add clouds and to add highlights to the airships. Images were further coloured with watercolour pens and a damp brush. I used a light spray with hairspray to fix the chalk and stop it from smudging. The topper was then edged with brown pen and faux stitching drawn with the fine tipped pen.
Embossing ink was added to the larger ship with the pen, and was heat embossed with clear powder.
StazOn ink was applied to the large airship stamp propellers before spreading with a layer of Soft Form Relief Paste. This was left to dry overnight before peeling away and trimming to neaten, then glued over the image.
Gears were cut from Kraft card, coated with Versamark ink and heat embossed with rust powder.
Sentiments were stamped onto scrap patterned paper, matted onto Kraft card, edged with alcohol maker and glued to the card with foam pads for dimension.
Dies to cut tag (Trimcraft?), small sentiment plate (Heartfelt Creations) and cogs (Tim Holtz Sizzix BigZ)
How it was made:
A thin layer of copper paste was spread onto the small hat and key stamps and left to fully dry before gently peeling away. This can take up to 2 days so you need to plan ahead. StazOn Ink was then applied to the stamps and the moulded pieces pressed back on to transfer the ink into the crevices.
The sentiments were stamped onto Kraft card with Versafine (Black Onyx) and were cut out with dies. Cogs were also cut from Kraft card.
The background was stamped with Versafine (Vintage Sepia). The edges of the decorative panel, sentiment panels and cogs were coated with Versamark and heat embossed with rust powder.
The large hat was stamped onto Kraft card with Memento, cut out and coloured with pencils. Note: I used Memento as I blended the pencil colouring with Sansador solvent (Versafine would bleed with solvent).
Elements were stuck to the card front with 3D glue gel for added dimension. Finished with a few PVA pearls.
Good morning. I had so much fun creating a fantasy world with the Steampunk themed stamps recently featured on Hochanda. Today I am sharing one of my show samples. I just love this sentiment verse and the fun sentiments that come with these stamp sets.
Good morning – I love stamping directly onto pretty background papers to produce quick and easy cards – great if you need to put something together in a hurry.
I stamped elements from the Seashell Collage and flying gulls from the Landscape Edges stamp sets using Archival Ink (Coffee) onto one of the pretty background papers from Crafty Individuals (Book 5 – Travels in Italy). The sentiment is from the Steampunk Travel set, and was heat embossed with white powder. I added a few details with a fine liner pen and quickly coloured some areas with brown pencil. I also blended a little pink dye ink around the edges and over the sentiment to make it stand out – the white embossing resists the ink colour.
