Hello Stampers! I'm Anita Houston, of The Artful Maven. WOW! WOW! WOW! I am thrilled and honored to be the Guest Designer here for the month of June, and it was pure JOY to use these exceptional quality stamps for my three projects! Thank you so much for asking me over Jennie!
Since I had so many wonderful images to work with, I thought it best to do a larger project, so a canvas fit the bill.
|I stamped the clock face from the Tick Tock set in Ranger's Jet Black Archival and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. I also heat embossed the Mountain Background after I stamped it with Ranger's Sepia Archival.
|I wanted to add some wind to the scene, so I used the swirls from the Tick Tock set and stamped them using Picket Fence Distress Paint.
|I had some scrap Metal Foil Tape already adhered to paper lying around, so I used this to stamp the next three images. I stamped the curvy diamond border from the Borders A5 set using Bronze Distress Paint, the key from the Time & Keys set using Jet Black, and the speedometer from the Slow & Fast plate using both the Bronze and Jet Black, which gave this a very dimensional feel.
|This little guy was so fun to stamp and emboss. He is from the Goose & Grease plate.
|I used several Distress Paints to color in the Professor, and some Idea-ology bits and a little Glossy Accents to finish out the speedometer.
|Using the Sizzix Picture Wheel and Mini Mustache, I die cut some kraft and cardstock to construct the balloon. I coated it with Rock Candy Crackle, added the numbers, inked it, and then added the speedometer, and finally connected it to the now make shift basket with the Professor. More Idea-ology metal was added, and finally I stamped the sentiment in Jet Black using the Journaling Words 2 and Journaling Words 3 sets.
