Time and Motion

Good Morning Crafters

We hope that you have all had a wonderful Christmas and that we only have a few days left of 2014.

It sure has been a very busy year at Imagination Crafts and looking forward to seeing what 2015 bring us.

Today we are sharing another of our new design team members tutorial.
 Marleen has made a beautiful steampunk card.

Products used for this project are:

Other Products used are:
White card stock
Blue card stock
Sentiment stamps (from personal stash)
Distress ink. 

Card stock
sparkle medium

Start by putting a big blob of sparkle medium onto a scraper and spreading it out

Then smear it over the card stock, trying to get an even coat.
To enable the white card to show through only give it a thin coat. 
A thicker coat can be applied if desired, drying time just takes longer.

 Once sparkle medium was dry, cut out glittered patch and put it through a big shot with a couple of cog dies. (please note that a thicker coat may not go through your die cutting machine as easy, so please take care if trying out this technique)

And VOILA.. Glittered cogs MADE!!

Marleen has found that this way of making glittered embellishments really easy, and by doing this, means that all her dies have now gotten another lease of life. 
Think glittered butterflies or swirls?? Or glittered siluhettes???
This definitely wont be a last time Marleen will do this :-)

 Now onto the rest of Marleen's project...
Using the Black Star Sparkle medium and the Time & Elements stencil.
Once sparkle medium was dry distress with weathered wood distress ink and layered up with cogs and sentiment.

Different views of the card.

Isn't this a beautiful steampunk card?
