Hello Artistic Stampers! Anita Houston of the Artful Maven, here one last time to bring you my last whimsical steampunkish canvas using these amazing red rubber stamps! I really have had the best time creating these three pieces (Project 1, Project 2), and have enjoyed reading all the comments and emails about them, as well as bribes to attain them ;0) !!! I do hope you didn't find them monotonous as they are very much alike, but each one has different motivational and inspirational intonations, and not only would they look well together but also apart.
|I started by stamped the Marbled Background in Sepia Archival and heat embossing it in Ranger's Clear Embossing Powder, and did the same with the clock image from the Tick Tock Set, except in Jet Black.
|Using the swirl from the Tick Tock Set, I stamped it Snow Cap Paint Dabber, so it would resist the Ink Sprays that would soon come. I stamped the phrase from the Journaling Words 3 Set.
|I sprayed a piece of tissue paper in Melted Chocolate, Pure Sunshine, and Black Marble Dylusions, then stamped the clock from the Time & Keys Set in Copper Paint Dabber. I cut it out.
|I adhered the the clock face to the center of the clock, to be the sun's face.
|I stamped the two smaller watch faces from the Time & Keys Set in Copper and Silver Paint Dabbers, and the larger watch face from the Watches Set in Gold Paint Dabber, all on Specialty Stamping Paper.
|I gave the faces the same Dylusions treatment, and then cut them out.
|I die cut the butterflies from Tim's Sizzix Alterations Movers & Shapers Mini Butterflies Set, and colored each with the metallic dabbers. I adhered the gears and attached them to the watch faces.
|I stamped the key from the Time & Keys Set in Gold Paint Dabber onto the corrugated kraft paper, as well as the makeshift ribbon from the Border A5 Set using Jet Black, and cut them out. Every thing got a good inking using Black Soot Distress Ink.
