This time I am back to what I adore with VLVS: their Steampunk stamps. I sure adore all VLVS stamps, but Steampunk they product is just the best of the best!
So I made this art piece over the thick cardstock with lots of VLVS stamps, lots of home die cuts, some chipboards, metal pieces and even made this clay owl to watch us while we explore this style and to offer us its wisdom.
First I painted this piece with Earth Safe Finishes paints, using a mix of Chalk Up paints over the cardstock that was primed with ESF gesso.
Then I stamped. Lot of VLVS backgrounds and a few of my lovely Steampunk images.
Then I added a few touches of ESF Gel Medium with Stencilgirl stencils and as this is clear medium I painted over them with a mix of ESF Iridescents.
The chipboard frame was painted into gold with a touch of blue patina and glued to frame the main stamped image. I added the chipboard heat embossed word " EXPLORE" and this mold made Makin's Clay own that was also painted over with the same blue paint.
I mix of die cuts made of dark red metal cardstock and some printed Kraft cardstock were glued over the piece with Gel Medium.
I hope you like my Steampunk art board and VLVS stamps as much as I do.
