Hello and welcome to my blog :) I have another of my Chocolate Baroque samples to share with you today, featuring the lovely Steampunk stamps from the shows last month. For this card I have used stamps from the Steampunk Funky Fish and Steampunk Sea World sets, Distress Oxide inks, black Versafine ink, clear EP, pearlescent ink sprays, metalic acrylic paints, a white pen and an embossing folder from my stash.
I began this project by creating the background. I took a piece of white card and spayed it with a couple of pearlscent inks and left it to dry. I then embossed the panel in a folder from my stash, I thought the swirling pattern represented the underwater currents of the ocean. I then blended DO ink around the edges and matted the panel onto black card.
I took a white base card and stamped around the edges with one of the large images using DO ink then attached the panel to the card.
I stamped some fish and a sea creature image onto black card using black Versafine, and embossed them with clear EP. I coloured the images with metalic acrylic paints and added white pen as highlights before cutting them out.
I shaped all the images with a ball tool before attaching them to the card with 3D gel. I took a spare piece of white card and stamped a sentiment in black ink and embossed it with clear EP. I blended a little ink around the edges of the panel then attached it to the card.
I had a ball creating this card, I love the little mechanical fishes and creature! I love the textures that I've created too. I think this is a cheerful little card that would suit all sorts of occasions and recipients of all ages.
Thank you for stopping by today I hope you've enjoyed this post. Feel free to take a look at my other work on this site, and I'd love it if you left me a comment! Hope you'll visit again soon :)
