Hi all. Hope this finds you well. A quick post (promise) to share a male travel/adventure card for entry into this week's Make My Monday challenge (Fathers Day) and the Artful Times Challenge (Men).
This started with the blue background: playing with the resist technique using Picket Fence on the swirls; lashings of Memento Paris Dusk stamped and sponged; more stamping with black Archival for the cogs; embossing using a Creative Expressions time folder; a sprinkle of CS Arctic Blue UTEE on the raised elements; and finally a slight distressing with Dark Walnut vintage ink.
The steampunk balloon and airship were stamped onto Kanban paper and further backed on black card, roughened at the edges.
The cogs and mini stamp were cut using SB and copper pearlescent card, and the mini postcards cut from antique gold card stamped with a Dimension Fourth image.
The bunting is metal tape on white card, coloured with White and Copper mixatives and Butterscotch alcohol ink, and 'riveted' with an embossing tool. Finally the sentiment is a Sam Poole Arty Phrase (LOVE 'EM!!) which I highlighted with a silver Uni-ball pen to make it stand out. The whole lot is mounted on a piece of K&Co Life's Journey paper from my stash. Hope you like. Thanks for all the wonderful comments.
Have a great weekend, hugs Buttons x
