Science Fiction Inspired Card

Greetings earthlings! Dancing on the science fiction and steampunk side of life at the moment. Today, I’m using Viva Las Vegas Stamps! Here is my latest creation using Viva Las Vegas stamps. vivalasvegas_steam

Using black cardstock as my base, I slathered on some white gesso. Stamped the images from Viva Las Vegas Stamp company. Colored the images using metallic markers. Cut out the images and adhered them to the card base. Used pop dots to add some gears from Paper Studio. Ran some metal duct tape through a Tim Holtz embossing folder. Cut the off two corners of the embossed duct tape and adhered them in opposite corners to add a little interest and texture. And there you have it, another Windy Ridge Sanitarium and Art Emporium creation. 
Remember, be true to yourself and embrace your own style, no matter how different that style may be.

Atomic Owl

Lovin’ Viva Las Vegas Stamps right now. We have an Owl challenge at a stamp group I belong to. We have to make a card or other paper project using an owl. I didn’t have any owl stamps, or at least I didn’t think I did. Called a friend and of course, she had some choices but they weren’t really my style. I had to have something to show, so I made a cute little owl card. The card was cute, real cute.  

BUT, I’m not really a cute person. I may look conservative in my every day life, but I’m kinda not conservative in my art. The cute owl card I made really wasn’t me. 
Then … as I was looking through my stamps to start a different project, I saw this Owl in my binder of Viva Las Vegas Stamps!!

One of my goals of in the coming year is to be true to who I really am. I’m starting out on the right foot (or wheel I should say) with the new stamp group. I think they’ll appreciate my art as they seem like a fine group of women. Most of all, I’ll have made my first move toward being myself all the time. Viva Las Vegas Stamps baby!
