Thingummybob (by Sandra)


I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and wish you a happy new year.
The house looks very bare now that all the decorations are down, but time to get back to crafting!

My cards are from the December show on Hochanda.
All my cards are made with stamps from Steampunk Funky Fish and Steampunk Sea World.
I think these two sets work so well together.

For this card I made a background using Distress Inks and stamped the Jellyfish and the Thingummybob .
I cut out 2 sets of the bubbles and added some gloss to them.

On my next card I made a background with Distress Oxides and stencils. I stamped the images and coloured with watercolour pencils.

My next card, I made a" porthole" on my cutting machine, added some "bolts" and painted  it to look like rust. I made a background with Distress Oxides  and coloured the fish with pens. This was then put onto a background paper of weathered wood, like an old ship.

My final card for today is the Airship. A lovely, fun stamp. Here I have put it onto an embossed background which compliments the Steampunk, Industrial  feel.

Thanks for looking and I'll be back in a couple of weeks with a few more cards to share

  1. Amazing cards for the show!! Love especially the last one!

  2. Love these, especially the second one.

  3. Gorgeous cards Sandra and I am particularly drawn to the atmosphere you have created on the first, in fact all the fish themed cards have such pretty colours and love the weathered wood dp on the third, and the airship looks great over the dry embossed and inked background. x


Thanks so much for leaving a comment - it brings a little ray of sunshine into our day when we know our work is appreciated!
