Blast from the Past Blog Hop
I'm so excited to share what I made with the mounted antique lamp,
along with feathered pen collage and blowing dandelion stamp.
dandelion image with shattered straw distress ink, stamp on white card stock to resemble
wallpaper. Trim away a portion of wallpaper for a ceiling effect. Shadow edges
of ceiling and corner with a pencil.
A piece of
manila card stock was cut to fit the card to resemble a tablecloth. 1/8" of Miracle tape was applied to May Arts ribbon, remove protective film and applied to the tablecloth to resemble fringe. Set aside.
gluing the tablecloth down, turn card upside down, stamp lamp base with archival black for table legs. Color with distress markers. Turn back around and then adhere manila tablecloth. Set aside.
Stamp antique lamp and feathered pen collage with
archival black ink on white card stock. While still wet pour ultra high gloss clear embossing powder on lamp, pour extra off and heat set to a high gloss finish. Cut both images out with sharp scissors.
Use distress markers to color lamp and feathered pen collage. Use drawing
pencil to add shadow on right of lamp and base of pen collage. Adhere lamp and
collage to card front with gel medium. Apply Miracle tape to card front and adhere to
green folded card to finish.
