Steampunk Art Canvas Flies With the help of Powder

I can't hide it even if I tried, my love for Steampunk art is pretty strong. The combination of vintage and industrial together is inspirational for me. Maybe it is the contrast or perhaps the dreamy nature of it, but Steampunk is pretty darn cool. Hi Everyone, Erika Taylor here today to share with you a Canvas I created using So of my favorite Wow Embossing Powders. The Gold Rich and Copper Embossing powders are perfect to distress gears with and I love mixing them together to create a really unique look.


I also used the Wow Clear Gloss Embossing powder on the butterfly and drizzled a little more of the Cooper powder on top. Love this butterfly!!!


The final project is filled with glimmer and whimsy and I really am a fan of how it turned out. The gears are perfect thanks to Wow Embossing Powders.


Thank you so much for stopping by today and taking a look at my Steampunk inspired Canvas using my favorite Wow Embossing Powders.

Until next time
Toodles Erika Taylor

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…
