eccentric edwardian stamps.
The first is a rather grungy card.
Background used a cog stencil and a very elderly walnut stain ink spray that I was given ages ago and had never used, I added another lighter layer of spray after removing the stencil. The car was stamped in black versafine ink, then the man alsoin black versafine but clear embossed to make him stand out a bit more.
A few diecut cogs from dark brown card were added in the corners, then a mat of the same brown card before adding to a square white card blank
I also recycled an empty instant coffee tin, these are so useful as a pen/brush holder.
This time the strip of white card cut to fit round the can with a lsight overlap was coloured with grey brusho powder, then randomly stmaped with the large crackle stamp using a grey ink pad. I used a die cut as a stencil and brushed more grey ink over it.
The man was stamped using black versafine ink and clear embossing powder before using the cyclist stamp and the small cyclist from the curiosities set to fill in the gaps.
I stuck the card to the can using redline tape stuck onto the can first along the edges with one vertical strip, then a final vertical strip onto the slightly overlapping edge of the card.
