Fly With Me

Hey up Tuesday blog hoppers how you all doing? Do you remember the quick peek of a demo sample I was in the middle of making that I showed you on Thursday? Well I have another sample to show today, this time it is a complete project and not just a peek!


It's a Basically Bare hanger with a bit of a steampunk theme.


I've used the Bare Basics Gears set and run them through my Cuttlebug in an embossing folder and painted with acrylic paints.


The hot air balloon is from the Up Up and Away Basically Bare set and I treated the canvas balloon with a bit of ZIG Fabricolor twin colour through a mask and then stamped with Archival and added some stitching.


So lots of textures to play with! All the Basically Bare items are available from the Kuretake Shop btw.

I have some other samples to show at a later date but before I go I just wanted to let you know about my new article in the latest issue of Papercraft Essentials PE81.


It's the Kiss stamping masterclass and I've used Hero Arts stamps for this one, hope you like it!

Thanks for popping by and have a fun Tuesday!

Kim

Edit: I'm linking this up to Brenda's blog Bumblebees and Butterflies for Tuesday Treasures, don't forget to pop over and checkout the links and Brenda's lovely stamped purse.
