Imagine, Wonder, Time



The landscape is composed of layered striped patterned paper adhered to a matching pattern from the same My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Hazel 6x6 pad. This was placed into my often-used Timeworks Cuttlebug folder for a ride through my Big Kick. When it came out, I sponged both Weathered Wood and Peacock Feathers Distress ink over the high spots of the embossing, then edged it using Black Soot Distress ink.

The Clockworks-Dark (FA-519-I) stamp from page 14 of the new catalog was stamped onto pale yellow paper using Wild Honey Distress Ink. This was die cut using a Pinked Circle Nestabilities, then kept in the die so I could use a great new tool, Ranger’s Inkssentials Craft Nibs & Nib Holder, to add more Distress Ink into the edgy bits. This piece was then cut in half and slid under the top most "hill".

Clouds were cut from checkered vellum using Memory Box' Clouds and strewn about the sky.

The Victorian Boot (FA-516-I) stamp from page 10. was stamped using Onyx Black VersaFine ink, heat set, then colored with Copic markers. The buttons were highlighted with Glaze pen to give them some dimension and shine. Small Grungeboard wings were painted with a silver Adirondack Paint Dabber, which also added some texture. They were layered and then the boot was added using a double layer of dimensional foam.

Thanks for visiting today!

This is fabulous, Kathi!! I love the way you made this is like a Steampunk landscape with the Clockworks stamp as a sun on the horizon and that awesome embossing folder for a background.
