Scrapper's Delights Steampunk Sunday Blog Hop


Hi and welcome to your next stop on the Scrapper's Delights Steampunk Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Mswipz. If you are just joining the hop, you can go back to the Scrapper's Delights Challenge Blog to start from the beginning. There are some FABULOUS Design Team projects for this release, trust me when I say you don't want to miss a single one! 

I'm sharing with you my project made with the image called Steampunk Boot. 



I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers TN9 TN7 TN6 TN5 TN3 BG8 BG6 BG5 and True Black. 

I made the background by inking up an embossing folder with black ink and running a piece of white cardstock through it. After it was embossed I went over the raised portion with some copper ink. I finished it off with a few metal embellishments and black rhinestones. 

Enjoy the rest of the hop! And make sure you check out the Scrapper's Delights Challenge blog for a special discount coupon. And if you comment on every blog along the hop you can enter to win 4 Scrapper's Delights images! 

Your next stop is Lynn

Scrapper's Delights Saturday Steampunk Blog Hop


Hey everyone! Welcome to the  Scrapper's Delights Steampunk Blog Hop!! You should have arrived here from the Scrapper's Delights Challenge Blog. If you're just joining the hop or just happened to stumble on it here, you'll want to hop back and start from the beginning.

There are some really amazing Design Team Projects and a great prize up for grabs if you comment on all the posts on the hop. All of those details are on the Scrapper's Delights blog, and I'm pretty sure I saw a nice little discount coupon for all the blog hoppers there too. 

On my project I used the Pocket Watch image. 


Along with the new image I used an older image called Victorian Digi 1.  I tried to make this one a little more Victorian and a little less Steampunk. I think it worked.

I colored the images with Spectrum Noir Markers. To get the lace on her hat and jacket, I paper pieced it in photoshop and then I printed the image on vellum. I cut out the jacket and hat area and then glued them over the colored image with Vellum Bond.


Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers used:
SKIN: FS2 FS4 FS9 TN4
HAIR: EB5 PP2 TN7 TN5
CLOTHES: CR7 PP5 PP2 IG3 IG10 IG8 IG6
OTHER: CG4 CG2 CG1 TN1 CR1

Enjoy the rest of the hop! Your next stop is Aurora

Steampunk Style With Scrapper's Delights {Freebie Friday}


There are some really, really great new releases coming to  Scrapper's Delights this weekend. They all have a Steampunk theme, and we have a little preview with the new Freebie Friday image! 

 I absolutely love Steampunk so I was so excited when I saw what Janice had drawn.  I was lucky enough to get a chance to create a few projects for the release this weekend. 

***

The Freebie Friday image is the Steampunk Pocket Watch. I knew I wanted to make some Father's Day Cards with this one. I also knew I wanted to use this awesome Tim Holtz embossing folder. My first step was to emboss some white cardstock.  

Then I got out my Perfect Pearls. I have had them since last Christmas, so over a year now, and never even opened them! This seemed like the perfect project to test them out on. I used two different color combinations to make two different cards.


Once I had these done I was able to pick out my marker colors. Once again I used the Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. 


For this one I used GG5 GG4 GB10 GB8 EB2 BG2 BG1 

To make the gears I cut the shapes on the Silhouette Machine out of the same cardstock I used on the base of the card. Before I cut them I sprayed the paper with various colors of Lindy's Stamp Gang Mists and let it dry. I love how they turned out. 


For this one I colored with: BG2 BG1 TN9 TN8 TN7 GG5 GG4 

Be sure to stop by the Scrapper's Delights Store tomorrow to see all the new releases and there will also be 2 blog hops this weekend as well, and you won't want to miss those!

This Freebie Friday image is available as part of the Facebook Progressive challenge. 

Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll stop back tomorrow and Sunday for the blog hops!

For the Love Birds


 A friend of mine will soon be celebrating her 51st Wedding Anniversary! How wonderful is that?! 

I made her and her hubby this card using the image Grand Couple by Some Odd Girl. The sentiment is from a Unity Stamp Company stamp set.  I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and Sparkle Pens. 

I have a tutorial on the Spectrum Noir blog on how I made the blue/grey Granny hair. There is also a full listing of the colors I used in that post.
