Fly Away with me by Debbie

When I recieved the Steampunkery Stamps I knew that I wanted to make a mans card. I chose to use the Air Ship stamping it with Memento black so that I could colour it with Alcohol pens. The edges were coloured with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink to tie on the colours. I mounted it onto black so that the image would stand out from the paper behind it which is from the Bo Bunny Serenity 6x6 pad. The base card is a white 8x8 and used the smaller stamps from Steampunk Travel with the Brushed Corduroy ink again. For the sentiment I stamped it onto card, cut it to a strip, scored twice on each side, folded and cut two triangles then glued onto the card. These are great stamps to have in your stash for lots of occasions. Debbie

  5. Your background paper is super with the whole design & I cannot get over how superbly that sentiment echoes the pennant on the top of the airship. The patterned paper from the Serenity pad helps accent the patterning on that top part of the balloon too. The use of black for matting is instructive too.
