Steampunk inspired?

Sunday Postcard Art this week – sponsored by Jean from Crafty Individuals (one of the very best rubber stamp companies in the UK), and a really charming example she has made for us. It’s not my “thing”, I don’t do the genre justice, unlike a lot of my fellow art-bloggers, but this is my take on the challenge. I used one of the fabric postcards I made last week as a base:

Prior to "punking"

And then I went ape with some homemade (link in a bit) spray ink… 😉

Now, present-day, post "punking"!

I like the metal bits, the pink I like less (though hse may have been playing in the background when I was making the ink…) and I LOVE my “cherish” stamp which finishes it off for me!

The spray ink I made with a Sharpie! Here’s where I watched(Jan Fox) the tutorial and I should’ve worn gloves, or at least one because I still have a bright pink thumbnail (and not in the Photoshop sense!!!)… duh! That took me ages to find and I don’t really know why. Phew! Jan is really easy to follow though and I am living (and rather pink), proof that this works!! 😉

  5. Beautiful! Thanks for the tip. I watched the tutorial. Now, we have to talk. She said you can also use Vodka. Wouldn’t that be a dreadful waste???? lol

    • Completely insane! I’m with you – such a waste! Besides, how many inks would I get made before I passed out, I wonder??!!!
