#119 challenge on the Lost coast designs blog. All about numbers.


The Lost Coast Designs challenge is all about numbers.
And as I have a preference for vintage and steampunk stamping, I went in that direction.
I used the lovely Steampunk bicycle lady.
This card is not so difficult to make.
So even a beginner can try out this technique.
I will help you through it.
So here we go.

What you need:
Embossing folder with numbers on it.
A white card.
Distress oxide,
Speckled egg
Ground espresso
Broken china
Fossilized amber
Crackling campfire
Distressink (not the oxide) Walnut stain
Stazon Timber brown
Markers or pencils to color the stamp.

Now the first step is to make ink puddles with,
Speckled egg, Ground espresso, Broken china
and Fossilized amber.
Spray a little bit of water on the ink.
Now pickup the ink with the paper.
Dry the paper, but leave it a little bit damp.
When embossing with a folder it works better when the paper is not compleetly dry.
Run trough your die cutting machine.
For the next step we are going to swipe with the stamppads over the raised parts.

Spray a littlebit of water so the ink will run out a bitt.
Dry the paper and then repeat the proces again.
As last repeat it with the Broken China.
Keep doing this till you like the results.
Now stamp the steampunk bicycle lady and color her.
Before you gleu her on the card, I have sew some stitching at the top and bottem.
And added 3 hotfix bronze stars.
And glued the card on dark brown cardstock.
Hope you liked this tutorial, and have fun with stamping.
