This gentleman is ultra cool! I just love how he looks, secretive, smart and sexy in a handsome steampunk kind of way! This is from the Tim Holtz Time Traveler's Blue Print stamp set! I just love it! These guys are are just the ultimate in cool! I used Bazzil Almond Cream as the base to stamp the image in Distress Walnut Stain ink. Then I simply colored in the image with some Copics markers. I also stamped the stack of suitcases in Walnut Stain inks and colored that image in with Distress inks and a water color brush. I found some Bo Bunny timepiece paper and distressed the edges. I used the Tim Holtz ticket Soar in the corner and sponged around the edges with Distress Walnut Stain. I used a single Tim Holtz gear and a timepiece trinket I had in my stash. I tried to stain the timepiece trinket a little with Distress inks as it was a little too gold and bright at first.Then I simply popped up the images with some sponge pop dots and it is done!
This is one cool dude! I fell in love with the Tim Holtz Time Travelers Blue Print stamps the moment I saw them! These guys are just too cool! These images really make me wish I could travel back in time and meet them! Even work with them in some kind of spy or subterfuge in a steampunk secret mission! For the Good of course! This is the first image I worked with. I simply stamped in Momento Brown ink and then colored him slightly and lightly with a barage of tans and beige Copics markers. I polka dotted the background with the same Copics markers. The frame is a Sizzlets frame set where both edges cut so you have an immediate framing of your desired image. I used Bazzil almond cream card stock for the stamped image, and Bazzil chocolate truffle for the frame. I stamped the gears in the background from this Time Traveler's stamp set. Just love how cool this guy looks!
