A Little Steampunk for You Today

I'm back at The Artistic Stamper Creative Team blog today with a bottle full of fun for you .....all wild and creative, which is controlled by my state of mind....or some may say.....no mind at all! I had such a great time playing around with The Artistic Stamper stamps on this piece.



This may take a bit of imagination here for some of you more straight laced people (not saying any names mind you), but I started out with a coat of gesso, then colored the chipboard with Distress Inks, stamped the top part with this cool cog bg stamp, added more gesso to tone it down some, and then flicked some water here and there to get a mottled look. These stamps have been creatively used several times, and I really had to come up with something a little different, that's how this all came about. I used Artistic Stamper stamps, added some Ranger cogs, some watch parts...The Artistic Stamper have got the best little packets of them, and added the rest of the stuff from my stash, aging with Distress EP. The bottle was colored slightly with pencils, then I added Distress Stickles on top. I hope I got you to think out of the box a little today, lol....you never know where your imagination may take you. (I usually land up on the 7th floor, in a padded room, all alone...can you imagine that! lol).

Hugs, Gerrie Johnnic

Hi Gerrie,

Yes, even my straight-laced mind can see all kinds of fun in this card! I love the bird. I love how you used that gorgeous crown become the birds "crown" of hair. I really love the image that is over the bottle and bird scene...perhaps it's a clock meets a sun? I can't figure out how you made the bottle look so full...and I loved the "wheels!"

It must mean that you are going places--- to celebrate your birthday today!

Love you, GF!
