I decided to use the Hocus Pocus stamps, so wanted an autumnal look to the backgrounds. I used some alcohol inks on some gold mirri, then stamped round the edges.
Also had a lucky find on ebay, I was after some steampunk stuff, but frankly the prices wanted for just a few pieces is a bit steep. So I typed in watch parts, and bingo, seems like watchmakers have cottoned on to us steampunk fans, lots of watch parts by the bag load! Yeah you can be the cog dies, but you can't get the itsy bitsy ones.
A very productive two days, swap card now made and ready to go into post, a birthday card to make... And must look round at the challenges, see if I can make any next week.
All for now... Oh almost forgot, a tip when using alcohol inks, the dilution mix comes in a bottle, I've transferred it to a small spray bottle, works much better that way, and lets you clean up your craft mat as well.
