Praying for Peace and Love for everyone.

Thursday, September 8, 2011


Happy Thursday, Everyone! It has been raining here all week, so that makes it perfect paper crafting weather ;) And since I have been thinking about the new school year (ds is a Senior this year) and dreaming of all the possibilities that lie ahead for him, I created this card.
I started with BAZZILL card stock for the base of this 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card. The pattered paper is from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff's Vintage Sheet Music FREEBIE! (click the link for a FREE download) I love the way this paper looks old and smudged. Of course, I had to give it some extra smudges with my TH Distress inks...but I digress...What I think is the COOLEST part of this card is the gears! Did you think they were metal? Guess again. They are just plain ol' Staples cream card stock, colored with copper and gold alcohol inks, then sanded and distressed with-you guessed it-more TH Distress inks. These cool gears are also part of a LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF svg set (STEAMPUNK). I used my cricut and SCAL to cut them out and Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to adhere them with dimension.
That's it for today. Be sure to stop by Thefrugalcrafter's Weblog for a cool video she made demonstrating different airbrushing techniques and a peek at the rest of her talented design team's projects this week. Thanks for stopping by!
