Hi everyone! I took the month of May off and am now trying to get back into the swing of things.
So today, I thought I'd share another card created with Brigid Ashwood's Steampunk Bee from Plate #105:
I stamped the bee onto beige card stock (Neenah Millstone Super Smooth 80lb), colored her with Copics and used a yellow Pitt Artist pen to outline the bee. I used a sponge and soft yello Pan Pastels pigment chalk to cover the background. To seal the chalk, I followed Katarina's example and embossed the whole image panel. I wasn't sure how it would work out, but it actually gives the impression of leather which works well with the brown embossed card stock. (The picture really doesn't show it too well)
When I think "Steampunk", I think metal. Well actually I was thinking washers, nuts and other miscellaneous metal objects that are on my husbands workbench but settled for using regular eyelets. The sentiment is from Plate #98. I like the straight, bold lines of the font which is perfect for this card since it is intended for a male friend.
Thanks for stopping by, I'm off to check out all the latest new releases at Sweet Pea Stamps!
