I'm back! Sounds a little scary, huh? The Artful Maven, Anita Houston here again, and I am thrilled to be back to show you my second installment using these amazing stamps from The Artistic Stamper!
I hope you caught a glimpse of my first project, but if not check out my Project #1, so you will see the theme I have going on here for Project #2.
|I began by stamping the European Map Background in Sepia Archival Ink and then heat embossing it in Ranger's Clear Powder. I also did the same with the clock that I stamped in Jet Black, and I used Snow Cap Paint Dabber to stamp the swirls. Both of these are from the Tick Tock plate.|
|I stamped both the Cogs Background and Small Cogs onto tissue paper using all three of the metallic Paint Dabbers.|
|I played around with some Dylusions Ink Sprays and came up with a nice looking rusty background for the cogs and gears using first Melted Chocolate, then Pure Sunshine, then bits of Black Marble.|
|I cut out some of the cogs and adhered them to the center of the sun. I stamped some of the words on the Journaling Words 2 set in Jet Black for the sentiment and heat embossed them as well. Then using a few pieces of scrap to mask off some of the canvas, I began misting with Dylusions, and my painted and embossed parts resisted the ink of course...love that!|
|Using silver cardstock and more metallic paint, I stamped the lightbulbs from the Inspiration Light Bulb set, the diamond border from Borders A5 #1, and the key from Time & Keys, and I cut them all out.|
|I added more cut out cogs to the lightbulb, some Distress Ink, and metal bits and gears.|
|Using the Sizzix Layered Wings Die, I die cut silver cardstock and white tissue paper for lots of layers.|
|When I was in London, I purchased these wonderful paperclips at Liberty of London. I colored them with Alcohol Ink to give a little foliage look.|
