Steampunk time at FSC..


That is the challenge for the next two weeks on FSC!!

If you are a bit wary of this challenge because you have never made anything to do with steampunk before then you are not alone. 
 I just never tried this before, it has been a real struggle, and to be hinest, I still think it isn't a real steampunk creation, but it will have to do! 
Have a look at all the Stampettes's creations on the FSC website! So just let your imagination go walkabouts and see where it leads you.
Come join us!  Prizes to be won!

All from Katzelkraft...

I used my favorite technique!


Playing with stamps, paper and color - that's my favorite technique; hence the name of my blog! Yes, that's all one layer, except for that yellowish part on the clock. That is a piece of the masking paper I used to mask the stamp when inking; I liked it so much, so decided to adhere a piece to the top of the clock...

I am entering this in the following challenges:
1. The Stampman Challenges - 'use your favorite technique'. Making collages and playing around!

Challenge #21 at FSC – Cities Of The World

Show us your capital city at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight and you could be in the running for a prize or place on the catwalk. It's up to you whether you stay in your country or whether you travel far away. Please keep in mind that we are a stamping challenge and that we want to see at least one real stamp on your project. Digis are not allowed.

I stamped the images with a solvent ink, the text on some blotting paper. I tore the blotting paper to attach to the tag, some small pieces. I stamped the dots with some gesso, and also brushed some watered down gesso over the text... 
I used goosebumps as a resist on the main image, and then sponged it al over..
