A bit of a mess!!

At least that is what my craftroom looks like especially when I've been stamping which is a rarity indeedy. But I do have a few stamps and on this card I have used one of my Kanban steampunk stamps with Tim Holtz distressing inks. I do think I was a bit heavy handed going round the edges of the topper and this kind of thing is what puts me off stamping more often. The topper was almost complete, I liked the main image so didnt want to waste it, and there I go . . .once on the ink cant be taken off!!!

The figures themselves were stamped onto white card and then I stamped the images repeatedly on some Tim Holtz grunge papers which I then cut out and decoupaged onto the original stamped image.
I also used Tim Holtz grunge papers for the backgrounds then finished off with ribbon, feathers, cogs and clock from stash with a couple of glittered roses that I made by twirling paper!

Thanks for stopping by, it's been great having your company. xx

  6. I love the wonderful layering of the image, the coats they are wearing look fabulous, and I think your distress ink edge actually is great, even if a little heavy handed as you described as it draws your focus to the image. Beautifully Done! xx
