I created the piece below last fall. A gal friend of mine gave the retro photo to me. To make it pop, I mounted it on corrugated cardboard. I painted the canvas with Golden Fluid Titan Buff. I distressed with a standard Versa Fine sepia ink pad and Tim Holtz distress inks in various shades. I distress with finger tip pads and a sponge pad. I distress almost everything I make. Sepia and the Titan Buff are two of my favorite shades. The black bird is chipboard from a Tim Holtz set.
This card was created with a new stamp by Inkadinkado called Steampunk Skull. I do love steampunk but this card is a take-off from what is normally standard for me. That is what I enjoy about art though- that is is forever evolving. Would be boring if it was the same old thing all the time.It is safe to say that I bought 99.9% of the supplies used on these two projects at Papertrix.
You can enter up to three items. I haven't created my third entry yet, but have it in my mind. Hope over to one of the websites and check it out for yourself. Or better yet, enter some of your own art work. You have until October 14th.
