Today I've got a project to share with you using one of the new June releases from Queen Kat Designs. This week I chose 'Steampunk Girl' by Lollipop Labs for my DT project.
I was in a distressy/grungy mood when I started creating and pulled out some fancy canvas strips I've had in my stash for ages. I stitched one piece to create a flower and added a button in the centre. The other piece I added underneath a heart shaped layer cut from some Tim Holtz paper using a Nellie Snellen die, and cut another heart shape with a slightly smaller die from the set using a scrap of paper from my stash. The base background paper was also from the TH paper pad and I distressed the edges before dragging a Rich Cocoa ink pad around the edges. I also distressed and inked the edges of the image layer.
The image was coloured with Copics and I added touches of Spica Glitter Pen. I opted not to include a sentiment on the front as I didn't want to cover up the smaller heart and it is easy to add an appropriate sentiment inside before sending out the card.
That's all from me today, next week when I'll have a project using another new release stamp to share with you, I hope you'll stop by again soon.
