Hi Everyone
I have just been playing with a new stamp from Bee Crafty 'The Colonel' from their Steampunk Stories range. This is a lovely big stamp but instead of going with a steampunk/vintage theme I thought I would just have a bit of fun with him.

Wasted!! I'm sure that most of us have been there lol.
I started with another of my pieces of card that I had been playing with Distress Oxides and onto that I stamped the Colonel image and the only part I added additional colour was his drink. I then masked him off and added the sunshine beams coming from his drink using normal Distress inks, over that I stencilled the 'Game Over' which is a Brett Weldele stencil (a new favourite). The text has been added using a Darkroom door alphabet set with some of the letters picked out by stamping on white paper and cutting out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend
