Hi there everyone. This is my last Guest Design Team post over on the Chocolate Baroque Design Team Blog and I have chosen images from the Steampunk Birds set of stamps, and also the little flower from Punky Flowers.
I started by stamping the little chick three times
on to white card
using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and then watercoloured the three images
with Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo Distress Ink and cut them out using the whole
image, then minus the egg to the right, then just the wing, followed
lastly by just the shell over the chick and decoupaged using the glue gel
which gives it a nice 3D look.
I then stamped the little birds and sentiments on to a 4" square piece
of white card using more Nocturne ink and coloured them using Peacock Feathers DI applied with a waterbrush. I then blended more Vintage Photo and Spiced Marmalade
around the edges and added the decoupaged image to the centre.
I cut a
piece of white card a little smaller than the square card and stamped
the larger double bird image on a spring and also the corkscrew birds
image which I thought nicely fitted in with the theme of the card, again with Nocturne ink. I then
infilled with a small cog image from Steampunk Birds and the smallest
flower image from Steampunk Flowers using Mustard Seed and finished with
more Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade and also a small amount of the Vintage Photo
blended around the edges.
Thank you for joining me today and I'll be back again soon and please visit the Design Team Blog for lots of great inspiration as there are new posts most days.
