Good morning again from me! Here's another new challenge to play along with, this time it's Lost Coast Designs, and the theme is Let's Fly. Here's my first project.
As soon as I stamped my steampunk gentleman this song started running through my head (probably because I'm very old lol) so I knew that it had to be my sentiment.
I started by making my background with some mixed media card and distress oxide inks.
Then I stamped my flying machines for placement. I wanted to just stamp the buildings but I wasn't happy where I'd stamped them. They were a little bit too low for my liking, but that can be fixed later.
I stamped my flying machines again and embossed them with bronze embossing powder. I also stamped my 'Magnificent Man' and coloured and cut him out.
I typed up my sentiment and added it. I'm still not happy with the placement of those rooftops lol.
So I inked up another piece of card and re-stamped them. You know what this means - yep - fussy cutting - shoot me now!
Oh but I'm so much happier with it now! It's mad isn't it, it's just an album page, just for me, no one is ever going to see it (apart from you guys) but I had to put it right! I've also inked around the spires to add a bit of 'old London smog'
These are the stamps that I've used.
I hope that you join in with our fun challenge! There's only 1 rule, the focus has to be on real stamping - no digis allowed!
So once again I wish you all a very Happy New Year, and thanks so much for looking xx
