My first post as a DT member for the Craft Stamper Challenge Blog.
A colourful 3D Airship using
an upcycled box.
|Just a fun little project to help celebrate the new year (although it feels a long time ago now!!!) and new beginnings.|
|I stamped this gorgeous image from the Steampunkery stamp set by Chocolate Baroque onto cartridge card twice (I used the other one for a mans birthday card which will be in a post next see).|
|This little square gift box was begging not to be thrown away. So I gessoed it!|
|Two layers.... exciting ...! Zzzzzz|
|While the gesso was still wet I dabbed in some DecoArt media fluid acrylic in Cobalt Blue with a large brush, picking up more gesso to give a sky like effect.|
|Chopped up a loo roll.|
|Rolled up the pieces and wrapped |
masking tape around them.
Painted them copper metallic paint by DecoArt. These would be the legs, I did eventually add a little silver paint too to tone down the copper!
|I used some Papermania stamps, embossed with copper embossing powder. |
Took a strip of scrap paper, snipped into it so that
I could have the numbers upright in the box.
|I used some cute clouds from Tando Creative (see next pic). I popped them|
into water and after a couple of minutes split them, this way I get even more
from the pack and they are really light and won't make the box fall over.
|I painted the airship with Aquatints|
|And here is the finished project. |
It'll help me to remember which year we are now in!!! Thanks for looking. Suz x
