Rustic Love (posted by Claire)

Good morning folks, Claire here with a sample made using Rustic Fragments, this time i've teamed them up with some of my favourite stamps from Punky Romance.

I made my background using Barn Door and Pumice Stone distress ink, blending them lightly on some white card with my blending tool. Then I stamped the fragment with Pumice Stone distress ink to create some texture.

I stamped the cogs with Versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder. I stamped 'Love' with versamark, and embossed with red sparkly embossing powder. Before I heated the powder, I used a fine brush to dust the red powder off the cogs and then sprinkled on some silver. I wasn't sure if this would work but the silver powder stayed in place perfectly.

Next I stamped the heart, again embossing in red. I stamped the image again, this time on vellum and embossed with silver embossing powder and cut them out before layering them up with some silver cogs.

Thanks for visiting today
Claire xx
