Young Engineer

Hello Blank Page Muse fans.  Gail here today.
This month the team are looking at Masculine makes and steampunk or vintage styles.  I think the Katz stamps are perfect for cards for the men in our lives.   This Kitty with a fish on his head makes me think of a hapless youngster away from home for the first time.  Always remember, it's never too late to call your mother!!

Other Supplies Used:
Double Stitch Rectangle die 
Patterned Paper
Black Archival Ink
Brusho Powders
Distress Inks
Gel Pens
Glitter glue

I started by cutting a piece of patterned paper with Stamplorations Double Stitch Rectangle die and stamped the Cat with black archival ink.

I used the small steampunk snowflake stamps from the Penguins on Ice stamp set along the bottom of the card with black archival ink.

I stamped the cat again on white card and fussy cut.  I coloured with Hickory Smoke distress ink and used gel pens on the fish.  I modified the sentiment, cos I figured when you are in a fix like this you don't have time to wait around for a fairy godmother to turn up!  I stamped the sentiment on vellum so I could move it around on my card and decide where to stamp it.

I stamped the sentiment using blue dye ink and used a watercolour wash of light brown Busho on the snowflake/cogs.

A bit of iridescent glitter on the fish and done!!

Thanks for dropping by, I hope you get the chance to stamp something fun today!
