Claudine’s APC Challenge is passing by very quickly, we are already on week 19 only 7 more to go! Still time to join in so come on over and have some fun!
I wanted to go with a Steampunk/Time theme this week. If you know me, you now I really love Steampunk, although I love it, I don't do it enough. So this week is all about Steampunk!
The Shimmer Sheetz are quite easy to cut, they are made from Mylar and take embossing very well.
I cut one of the copper coloured Sheetz to the size of the playing cards and then ran it through a Cuttlebug Gears folder. Got a piece of 280 sandpaper and rubbed off some of the colour.
The technique that i liked from You Tube was taking some Blending Fluid and rubbing it onto areas you wish to remove the colour from. If you zoom into the images you will see those areas a little more clearly.
Took a tiny blob of Quinacridone Gold and Metallic Gold DecoArt Media Paints and finger painted some areas to highlight them.
Machine stitched around the cards to add another highlight to them.
Sewed the moth and sentiment onto the APC.
Vellum is making a comeback and i found some very old embellishments, cut one of them out and mounted it onto a book page heart shape, then sewed into place.
Have really enjoyed working with the Shimmer Sheetz, i hope you like how shiny and versatile they are.
Am also entering this into the Paper Artsy Challenge 2 Shiny Stuff.
