My second creepy creation! I start to feel like Dr. Frankenstein.. This Pocket Letter was created for a lady who likes vintage and steampunk. I stained an old page out of a dictionary using disress mini ink cubes for the background. By drying the ink after applying it to the paper, you build up different layers, giving it a more interesting look (of course you could do this the old fashioned way with coffee and/or tea). I dried the front and back of the paper after smudging it in the ink, making sure the complete page is dry and not only the ink.
Because I don’t have anything in the steampunk style, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out some embellishments with images I found online. To keep it in style, I heat embossed the diecuts with gold glitter embossing powder in multiple coats. To make the embossing powder stick to the diecuts, I used my Versamark pen. This pen contains a clear, sticky ink which is perfect for this technique. I didn’t feel like the embossed images really went well with the stamped images of Stampotique, so I decide to make a little shaker pocket. I filled the shaker pocket with all kinds of little pieces; my glitter diecuts, hotfix mini rhinestones, sequins, nail art fimo pieces and some small beads.
My base layout was finished, but I decided to embellish it even further. Besides cutting out all my Stampotique images and water coloring them, I also stamped the distressed dictionary page. I used different stamps for a more “artsy” look. All the products I used are listed at the end of this post.
