OMG! This eclectic phase is hanging on like Stazon down my fingernails. I have lots of ideas running through my head at present to the extent that I have a small pad of paper at the side of my bed to jot stuff down in case I forget. I like what is happening but not at the expense of sleep!
Anyway, I came across this brilliant saying in a fantastic magazine I’ve found called The Stampers’ Sampler. Full of hints and tips and colour photos. FAB!
All my life, I always wanted to
Be somebody. Now I see that I
should have been more specific
This was attached to something completely different to what I created, however it got my juices flowing with the Jubilee and all that. I have just purchased a Personal Impressions stamp called Steampunk border and watch. I had just completed the Tim Holtz challenge 7 using Tim Holtz Mona’s Sketchbook and was looking at pictures of the queen on the web. So………….
I decided to combine all 4 elements in one project.
Then I stamped the border a few times onto backing papers, heat embossed with WOW ebony embossing powder and cut the coggs and wings out. The hat is also on the border and I stamped that in a pretty pink backing paper.
Put together you have……….. a hip and trendy steampunk Queen. She reminds me of a borg – a rather glamerous and good looking one at that!
Hope you find some inspiration in what you are reading this week.
