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!
