613 Avenue Create Challenge Blog and RSD

I hope that all Mothers everywhere are having a fantastic Mother’s Day. We all deserve it.  At least that’s my opinion.

Rick St. Dennis MFA is the sponsor over at 613 Avenue Create challenge blog. The theme is Anything Goes with a Twist. That twist is no squares or rectangles allowed, but you can create an easel type project. I have the honor of being their Guest Designer for this challenge.
I took the easel route and created a Steampunk themed easel card. The image I used is Victoria McSteeme, from Rick’sEtsy Shop. Take a peek at all the other lovely ladies that he has created.
This was a fairly easy easel card to create. After my image coloring with Copics was complete I used a Spellbinder’s Grand Decorative Oval One die on that image. I cut out the center part of that die with the image and accented with Frayed Burlap Distress ink.  I used the same die for the copper frame and attached the center part. The cogs on that section are from a chipboard collection by Make It Crafty. I used Viva Décor Inka Gold in copper and lava green to try and make them look a little more like metal. This new Viva Décor Inka Gold is a dream to use. It is a beeswax base which allows you to buff for a wonderful shine.
The bottom of the easel card was created with Spellbinder’s ovals and a smaller die from the Grand Decorative Oval One set. My collection of metal embellishments came in handy for this project. You can never have too many metal embellishments, right?

I hope you join us at 613 Avenue Create. Wait until you see what their design team comes up with using Rick’s images.
