I decided to join in the Tag Swap this month over in the UK STampers Facebook group. The theme is Anything Goes (as long as there is some stamping!)
I chose to use this cool Vitruvian Man stamp from Bee Crafty – I have had it for ages and never used it before (how many of us are like that!!!)
The background had some inking and heat embossing on it. I didn’t like it too much so took some scraps of patterned papers and collaged over it, allowing a little of the heat embossed to design to show through.
I stamped the image in sepia ink and then triple embossed with clear embossing powder. Once cooled, I cracked the embossing and rubbed some ink into the cracks before gluing in place.
The piece is finished with some metal embellishments and a mini wood frame. The seam binding ribbon is coloured with Distress Inks to match the colour scheme.
Thanks for stopping by – hope you enjoyed this project!
