Over the last few days, I decided I needed to make some cards just for fun. I ran around blog land and found some challenges that sounded interesting and checked out a couple new challenge blogs. I wrote up my list of elements for the challenges and away I went. I wanted to make a Birthday Card for my Nephew and he likes Steampunk stuff. This is his birthday card.
Stamps: Aviator-American Arts Stamps; Leather Goggles- Judi-Kins; Script, zeppelin, and sentiment-Artistic Outpost- French Flight.
The background was made by adding ink (I used spray inks and reinkers) on a Craft sheet (add some water) and smearing watercolor paper around in the ink. The diamond strip is a scrap from one of my Crafters Workshop Template backgrounds. The template (Mini Harlequin) is laid on the CS and sprayed with Stream Adirondack spray ink. I stamped the Aviator with Vintage Sepia Versa Fine The other stamps were stamped with black dye ink. I added some Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo Distress inks.
I added some coiled wire and black ribbon for embellishments. I stamped the number 17 because this is my Nephew's seventeenth birthday.
I stamped a couple more zeppelins on the inside and a vertical Happy Birthday from Blockheads Stamps.
