Here’s some fun news! I’ve been spotlighted at Simply Betty Stamps today and I made this project for that very special reason. Head on over and check out the post then don’t forget to leave some love for Betty. ;D
For my project I used Steampunk Rio from Simply Betty Stamps and paired her with the Clockworks House from Make it Crafty. I chose to go with an easy brown and blue combination and started off picking paper from my scrap stash. Because the Clockworks House looks like it’s small enough for a fairy… I added chipboard wings to Rio.
I was on the look out of the meshy metal stuff at the scrapbook store (later I found out it was called Punchinella Sequin Waste Ribbon) but instead I was only able to find some burlap ribbon. However, it worked out nicely on this page too. ;D I finished up the page with more chippies and button brads.
There is a revolutionary new technique that was used on this page and I’m sure everyone is going to want to try it… at least everyone under the age of two! LOL My daughter calls it art but I called it “Agg, what did you do!!” She scribbled on the background image with E53 and over the character image with a pencil!! I was able to salvage Rio but the background just had to stay as is – luckily the color wasn’t too dark. ;D
