I've just finished making another ATC this morning, based on the theme at Wicked Wednesday this week - "Use Numbers".
Coincidently, it also works with the Stampotique Designers Challenge which is "Milestone Celebrations".
Starting with the background, I blended 'mermaid lagoon', 'dusty concord' and 'peeled paint' Distress Inks together. Using my handmade circle stencil, I created a 'bokeh' effect with Stampin' Up! 'Whisper White' ink. Once that was dry, I stamped "50" onto three of the bubbles with black ink.
The steampunk snail is from PaperArtsy Eclectica EM04 and was stamped, fussy cut and coloured using Distress Markers in various colours.
This is the first outing for this rather distinguished snail - hope you like him.
This is my entry to this week's challenges which you can find here:
I'll be back again soon, so be sure to look in!
Edit - The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers currently has a Steampunk challenge - please have a look!
