MMSC90 -- Steamer Trunk


Happy Tuesday!  Hope you are enjoying your day.  Today I have a card I made for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 90 (MMSC90).  My Image and sentiment are from the "priscillastyles" set called Steamer Trunk, and is available from the "priscillastyles" Store.

My image was colored with Copic markers.  I used a rag moistened with blender solution to give an "aged look" to the exterior of the trunk.  My paper piecing was done digitally  by using the "format picture" function in "Word" to remove the background and to add a patterned fill to the interior of the trunk.  Finishing touches include adding some highlights to the trunk's hardware and flowers with glaze pens as well as sponging the edges of my image and sentiment panels with antique linen distress ink.  

My card qualifies for the following challenges:
Stamp Something - February Digi Day Challenge -- Use a digi  ( I used a digi image and sentiment.)
Paper Play Challenges '11- Week 5  - Stamp it Out -- Use your stamps (rubber or digi)
One Stitch at a Time Challenge #48 -- Do it with a Digi - Anything with a digi (I used a digi image, sentiment, and paper.)

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I really appreciate your taking the time to visit!

Supplies: Digital Stamps - Steamer Trunk Set by "priscillastyles" Store; Paper - SU! early espresso, soft suede, PTI select white, generic white base, Webster Pages DSP, computer-generated dotted background paper; Ink - computer, Copic Markers and glaze pens for coloring, antique linen distress ink for sponging, stardust clear gel pen, blender solution; Accessories: Nestabilities die, flowers by Recollections for Michaels, dimensionals.

  6. OK that is just so way COOL, I tried to follow along on the how to but I'm not very tech savvy. Love how you were able to finish the inside and very clever use of the wet cloth to distress.
