Break Free

Hi friends!

I'm sharing a card today with a bit of a different vibe...it's always fun to mix things up! It features one of the Mixed Media Bland Canvas Collection 2 stamps. This steampunk style heart is part of the Follow Your True Heart set. The image was coloured with Copic markers. In keeping with the steampunk style, I pulled out the Steampunk Wings from Dies by SCACD (yes, you get both wings in the set!) and cut them out of black cardstock. They were randomly sponged with silver paint and adhered to the back of the heart. I then cut out Uncaged Bird, another of the Dies by SCACD, trimmed off the bird and vines and painted the cage silver. It was then antiqued with black ink and I tore a couple of the bars so that it would look as though the heart was breaking free of the confines of the cage. The design was adhered to create a three dimensional effect with the help of foam dimensional squares. I also used Classic Corner Dies to finish it off. The papers were all distressed, sponged with black ink and edged in silver paint.

Make sure to stop by SCACD for all your crafty needs! Susana is always adding new products to the store site, and service is always fast and friendly. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
