Hello there my crafty friends,
I'm here today to share a card with you that I've made for this month's challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. The theme this time is 'It's Just a Number' and was chosen by my wonderful teamie Brenda.
I thought this one might be a bit of a struggle for me as I only own one small very basic set of number stamps and so I decided to use a clock stencil as the main number feature.
I started by using some of my homemade embossing paste, through the stencil and onto some stamping card. Once this was dry, I used various inks to colour the background and then I randomly stamped some numbers and clocks around the outside of the large clock.
I rubbed some gold gilding wax over the clock but it just didn't look right and so I used some sandpaper to take it back to the original white colour of the paste. This made the numbers stand out and I was then happy with the look of it.
As the card had a bit of a Steam Punk feel to it, I thought I would add some stamped images from Flonz Craft to continue the theme. The Gibson Girl is one of my favourites from Flonz Craft and I find that I use it time and time again, The two men are from another set which I love called 'True Gentlemen.'
We would love you to join us in this challenge but please remember that we are a stamping challenge, so please don't use digital images or too many die cuts, just good old fashioned stamping, and lots of it!
My wonderful teamies have made some amazing inspirational pieces so please pop over to their blogs and take a look if you get the chance. All their details can be found here, or at the Fashionable Stamping Challenges web site, along with the rules for the challenge.
We are as always, very generously sponsored by Leo over at Flonz Craft and one lucky random winner will receive a $20 voucher to be used online. There will also be a Top 3 spotlight, chosen by the Design Team,
