Good evening lovelies! I'm itching to get out to craft tonight, but it's blowing a gale out there! My craft room is in the garden!
So tonight's post I actually made last night!
So I started with an 8x8 cream scalloped edge card base, I matted with craft card that I'd created a background by embossing a script stamp in clear EP and inked over with brushed corduroy DI I then stamped with mustard seed DI the harlequin background stamp from Visible image, and the Grunge polka dot background in wild honey DI, I then used brushed corduroy dabber style stain to create splats randomly, this created a great Grungy background, I'm loving doing these collage style backgrounds at the moment for men's cards, the next layer I used a large polka dot mask to emboss craft card and inked over with peeled paint DI and rounded the corners, the topper I embossed using the cogs mask and inked with mustard seed DI and the edges with black soot DI to create a frame I used the brushed corduroy DI and the harlequin background stamp again but second generation this time to make it more distressed, then stamped the vintage car which is from Creative Ex travel set in coffee Archival ink! The tickets are also C Ex stamps from the steampunk set which I inked and crumpled up and stuck on with pinflair for some definition! A lot of work but love scratch crafting, I think it came out well? Thank you for visiting today! If you get a chance visit http://www.visibleimage.co.uk their stamps are fab quality and the service is second to none!
