Oh we have a fabulous challenge for you this week at Crafting by Designs! This is an Anything Goes challenge and we have Smeared Ink as our sponsor so I got to play with a great wee Gear Heart image with wings! And, after talking to a couple of friends during the week about keeping paper that is too good to cut into, I finally got the courage to use the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells papers that I've been drooling over for many weeks now!
So, with the stamp, I printed and coloured it twice, layering it up with 3D foam to make an embellishment for the card, rather than as a central image. I cut and layered paper and images from both the 6x6 and 8x8 paper pads using black pearlescent paper matts. And I finished the card with a large black floppy bow.
A simple design, I didn't want to overdo it. The image is coloured as always with my promarkers and as the lovely Andrea and Karen both said, the papers look much better on a project than in the pad!
I will enter this in the following challenges -
