Alphabet Soup At That's Crafty Challenge Blog

Hello again, I'm back with my second post today which is all about our new challenge over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog which for the next fortnight has the theme of Alphabet Soup.

My inspiration is rather different to my last post as it's a masculine card this time with a slightly steampunk flavour.

I made the background paper with vintage shades of Distress Ink and I then stamped on a Carabelle Studio alphabet collage stamp. I then used 2 That's Crafty Dinky Stencils with the same ink.
I stamped on some of the elements from an Oxford Impressions steampunk stamp set and stamped the Einstein (I think!) image on a tan tile and trimmed to a panel. I added this to a dark grey mat.
I attached the panel to a grey card blank and added the image panel to finish.

I used:
Carabelle Studio Cling Stamp - Une Plume Sur Mon Carnet
Oxford Impressions Unmounted Stamp Set - Steampunk
That's Crafty Dinky Stencils - Grid Background, Arrows
Distress Inks - Wild Honey, Fossilized Amber, Vintage Photo, Pumice Stone
Archival Watering Can Ink

There's a fab prize of a £20 voucher for the online shop up for grabs if you enter and do hop over to see my DT mates creations which are totally fab too!

Have a great weekend and week and see you when I get back!

The Dinky Stencils work an absolute treat in your background, very clever. My O.I. Steampunk themed stamps have been neglected for too long, you remind me just how wonderful they are!
BTW, great colour choice.

What a great masculine card - love that stencilled background and the colour is so unusual.
