Here is my design team project for this week!!!
So how many
can you get on one card?
This week I am so excited to share a little Viva Las Vegastamps! STEAMPUNK with you. I love to Collage and Steampunk is one of my favorite styles to collage.
In this collage there are 12 Viva Las Vegastamps! (all listed below) on a 5 1/4 x 4 1/2 card base, the gears were used multiple times. To start, plan the collage by laying out the stamps you would like to use on a blank sheet. Plan which stamps will need to be stamped first and masked.
Once the images in forefront are stamped, let ink dry. Protect areas form being stamped over using Fineline Masquepen . When the mask is dry stamp other images. Then gently rub the mask off.
Using a dauber highlight areas of the images with the Stewart Superior Memories Chalk Foggy Ultramarine Ink and Memories Regal Burgundy. On this card Memories Chalk Foggy Ultramarine Ink was used on the Eiffel Tower, Bird Cage, Steampunk Glasses Man and Mustache Face. The Memories Regal Burgundy was used on the Lightbulb with Filament.
Stamp the following Viva Las Vegastamps! Round Top Birdcage, Steampunk Glasses Man, Mustache Face Features, Eiffel Tower Medium on pattern paper tissue, be sure to use a piece of paper or protective craft sheet below as the ink will bleed through the tissue. Then spray with a fixative.
Gently tear the tissue around stamped images, layer each image over the its corresponding stamped image on the card.
Adhere the stamped panel to pattern panel, and scallop paper with VLVS! Miracle Tape. Finally attach to the card base. Stamp Steampunk Glasses Man on pattern paper and cut out tie and adhere to card. Using the same pattern paper cut a small strip and attach to the bottom of the card to give it a horizon line. To each corner add scraps of torn paper resembling photo corners (see first photo). Use Sakura 3D Lacquer to highlight the light bulb. Adhere locking washers with the 3D lacquer, set aside to dry.
