Blog Challenge: Maura's first project
I found this cool stamp from Inkadinkado, got two, and our January blog challenge was born as Sheila and I used this to make our projects to share with you.
If you don't know by now, I am a big fan of SteamPunk, and find myself using this style more and more. I definitely saw the possibilities for some SteamPunk art with this stamp. So, of course, my first project with this had to be along those lines!
I chose to use the stamped design as a background. It fit in perfectly with the Graphic 45 SteamPunk Debutante papers. I also had the Graphic 45 stamps from this line, and could just picture all of this design kind of flowing out of her head. I added all kinds of gears, some rhinestones, a hinge, and a few other surprises in there, stamped "date" and put it together.
Now, I hear you say, is it just a book? Well, no....it's the cover to a "perpetual" birthday/anniversary/important dates that you want to send a card to someone "book".
Here's a peek of an inside page with 2 months for dates on the left, and a pocket page on the right to put cards in. My thought is that as I make cards, I can put them in here and be totally organized, and mail them out on time. (well...it was a good thought....)
