Lisa's Steampunk Card

Hello, Lisa Hoel here. Sometimes it's hard to come up with ideas for masculine cards or gifts but we'll have plenty of inspiration for you with our current Funkie Junkie theme, "Hats Off to Our Men". The challenge was to celebrate the men in our life with a card or gift. I decided to go with a card:

Lisa Hoel for The Funkie Junkie Boutique  #creativejuicefreshsqueezed  #mymakingstory #tim_holtz #thefunkiejunkieboutique #sizzix
You can't go wrong with steampunk!

This was a fun card to put together and it gave me a chance to play more with Distress Watercolor Pencils.

First I stamped the background of Mixed Media Heavystock with a grid of stamps from the Creative Blocks set in Hickory Smoke Archival Ink. Leaving the stamped paper in place on my stamping platform, I colored the stamped details with the pencils and then blended them out with a brush.

After the paint was dry, I re-stamped over the top of it all with more Hickory Smoke Archival Ink. This brought back the detail of the stamped images.

I also used the pencils to color the Paper Dolls Portraits ephemera piece. (Distress Crayons work pretty well too.)

Thanks for stopping by. Keep an eye here on the Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, TFJB Inspiration Ave. for regular doses of expanded (and inspiring) content each week. Don't miss it…
