I received two sets of very cool stamps from Stampendous to work with and something I'd never seen before: Spoonful of Rust Embossing Powder and Elements. These were definitely my kind of supplies and I knew I was in for some rusty, steampunky fun!
Instagram or Facebook, you got a glimpse of the Spoonful of Rust while I was working on my project. Judging by everyone's reactions, you love it as much as I do! I have never tried a product that produced such incredible results the first time I used it. Most definitely a must-have! And, how cool is that steampunk bird? I love that little guy! I used this challenge as an excuse (not that I need one) to pull out my DecoArt paints and get artsy. I love all the texture from their Texture Sand Paste and Crackle Paint.
I wrote up a super quick tutorial so you could see how it all came together. Very easy, very messy, very fun!
Wow, so much rusty, grungy goodness! I love the way the stamps, powder, paint, and embellishments all come together on Eileen Hull's fantastic block. I'm an ATB addict for sure!
Make sure you check out my fellow artist's blogs for loads more inspiration:
We know this form of crafting will spark your interest and give your mojo a serious boost! That’s why we have prizes!!! We’ll choose three winners at random from the comments on all blogs in the hop. Then from those three we’ll randomly pick a GRAND PRIZE winner! Two of the winners will receive Stampendous PenPattern Petal and PenPattern Flutter cling stamps, just like you’ll see on Kristine Reynolds' amazing ATB sample. They’ll also receive enough pre-cut, premium matboard from Sizzix to make two boxes of your own, plus some extra pieces for fiddly bits! The Grand Prize winner will receive the stamps as above, a whole package of matboard, AND the Sizzix die to cut your own ATB boxes! Uh, WOW! If that weren’t enough, eligibility for these amazing prize packages has expanded to include our international fans too!
