Cogsley Copperpot ~ SteamPunk Tag

Jeg er enda i Lofoten på Hammerstad Camping sammen med familien. Alt av scrappeting og tang ligger igjen hjemme og venter ~ har bare med meg de essensielle distress inks'ene og noen utvalgte stempeltrykk ~ de kan jeg ikke være foruten! ;)

Creative Fingers utfordring denne uken #40. er sponset av The Stamping Chef, og som alltid er det 'Lag-hva-du-vil' med et valgfritt tema som denne gangen er å lage en tag! :)

I'm still in Lofoten at Hammerstad Camping with my family ~ long way away from my scrap room, but I have brought my precious Distress inks and some select digis.. Never go anywhere without my twinkling H2o's either.. how would I cope without getting my inky fix? Who's addicted? Me?... naaaah! ;) 

My SteamPunk style tag has the awesome 'Cogsley Copperpot' on it, thanks to The Stamping Chef who is our sponsor this week at Creative Fingers in challenge #40. Theme is as always Anything Goes, with an optional twist this week of creating a TAG/s! You are most welcome to join in! :)

Stamps/Images: The Stamping Chef 'Cogsley Copperpot'. Kort & Godt 'S-215' (text). Lazar StudioWERX Inc rubberstamp 'Funky Holidays' (swirl).
Papers: Canson Montvale aquarelle paper.
Embellishments/Tools: Tim Holtz Sizzix Big Shot Die 'Tags And Bookplates'. Marianne Designs Creatables 'Oval Frame LR0293'. Anna Griffin 5x7 Embossing Folder and Border 'Foundry'. Glossy Accents (on her goggles) from Ranger inc. Basic Grey 'Hang 10' ribbons. Misc re-used ribbons from my shirts/blouses.

Techniques: I prefer Canson Montvale aquarelle paper (200 g/m coldpressed). My distress tools from Ranger Ink is always in use! ~ Tim Holtz® Mini Ink Round Blending Tool & the Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool and Foams. I used misc. Luminarte Twinkling H2o's Shimmering Watercolors, and Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads & markers to watercolor and distress image and papers. Ranger ink  Vintage Distress embossing powder & my heat tool made the frame feel like sandpaper to the touch, wich is a really vintage effect!

The 'flicking-water-with-your-fingers' technique I told u about in my last post with the pirate card, I also used ALOT on this steampunk tag. Along with dabbing the tag in ink on my craftsheet. The background is done mostly with Scattered straw & Rusty Hinge, a dash of Vintage photo and perhaps some Tea dye! You can go along way to acheiving the vintage look by starting with theese Distress inks ans some good blending tools.. and water comes for free! :)
