He Was a Curious Fellow


I saw this fantastic Steampunk 2 Art Journey stamp plate in the November 2012 Craft Stamper Magazine. I ordered it direct from the company in the Netherlands. This week I found some challenges that are perfect for inking up these stamps. And I used each and every one that came in the set.


I started with a turquoise linen card.  The bottom is embossed with my newest Stampin' Up Textured Impressions Sissix embossing folder--Honeycomb.  The top is stamped in Stampin' Up Tempting Turquoise with the bubble wrap background stamp from Rogue Redhead Designs, LLC. stamp plate: Behind the Scenes, and, in Ranger Wild Honey Distress ink, the smaller stamps from the Art Journey set.  I then blended in some Making Memories Manila acrylic paint. I used a piece of twine from my stash to help separate the top from the bottom.

I stamped and printed on Stampin' Up Very Vanilla card stock.

I stamped the male image in Ranger Rusty Hinge Distress ink and fussy cut it. I edged it with Ranger Wild Honey Distress Ink marker.  I stamped the wings with Black Archival Ink, distressed them with Rusty Hinge,  fussy cut them, and edged them with Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink marker.  The images are popped up with dimensional foam dots. 

I hope you enjoy my play on words.  After I generated on the computer my words, I cut them out and overstamped with the smaller Art Journey stamps in Rusty Hinge and then created word boxes with a black Sharpie.

The metal parts:  A piece of necklace chain (from Walmart) and a Tim Holtz Idea-ology gear which I "rusted" with Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink in Terra Cotta.

I made this card for the following challenges:

Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge #49 Metal Mania
All Sorts Challenge #194 Things With Wings
So Artful Challenge:  Curiosity/ Rust and Turquoise
Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge:  Metal-ology
