Bombshell Muse Monday -Final Week

This month is nearly over and today is the last week of the Bombshell Team's Stamp Set of the Month 'All my Heart'

Here is my project I created:

I stamped All my Heart onto a piece of cardstock that had been covered with pieces of foil tape.
I angled the tape in different directions to look like metal sheets overlaid.

After I stamped the image with Staz-On ink I used and embossing tool to go over the outline of the stamped image so it was pressed into the metal tape.
I did the same with the edges of the metal tape pieces too, and embossed pinpricks around each section to look like the metal 'plates' were riveted together.

I rubbed red acrylic paint into the stamped, embossed image and then wiped it off so that the paint went into the embossed lines.

Before I mounted the embossed image onto my patterned paper I decided to add some texture with some texture paste. Rather than use the texture paste as it is (white) I squeezed some paste onto a plate and then added a few drops of ink into it. I mixed the ink into the paste to colour it so tone with the patterned paper. Next I pressed the embossing paste through a harlequin stencil then I removed the stencil and sprinkled Rock Candy Dry glitter onto the wet paste. When the paste was dry I shook off the excess glitter and ended up with a subtly sparkled background.
I was really pleased with the effect!

So there you go! 'All my Heart' is a really cool stamp set and I can see myself using it lots as it has a cool vintage vibe as well as the more obvious 'love' theme!

Happy crafting!

Very cool! I really like the harlequin background and the riveting on the metal.
