steampunk birthday

If you remember a few posts ago was showing a card I was working on for our granddaughters upcoming birthday....well here is the end result.

I used my Stampin up French Script  onto the dressmaker die with staz on black, roughed up the edges a bit, then stained it.   Graphic 45 background paper.

Have some acetate circles which I stamped this steampunk image made by La Blanche.  Cut out a smaller circle in cream colour to slip in behind to make the image pop out .

Of course being steampunk need to add all sorts of bits and bobs......

Lost Coast Challenge #3

Come and play over at Lost Coast...

Words and/or letters is the theme for this challenge ...  Using this 'goddess' stamp - I stamped it onto vellum paper so I could get the reverse look......(I'm never cease to amaze myself hahahahaa)  So because I thought she was a goddess - used my saying stamp also.  Both stamps are from Lost Coast.

Come and play for a chance of winning some more rubber !!!

Playing around

Was away on holidays and hadn't been in my craft room for a few weeks.   ahhhhh, feels good.

This image I bought from Viva Las Vegas rubber stamps....just swished some ink across my 
card stock.  Quite simple - but turned out okay for a quickie.

Then of course - embellish and layer....
