Hi, it’s Barb here, playing Stampendous BlogStar!
My oldest son has a birthday coming up and he is a bit of a non-traditional, Steampunk kind of guy…and loves cats…so I thought of him when I saw this Stampendous Cling Felinus.
“F.E. Linus, top-hatted kitty and Spectacle Maker is a skilled Lapidary on
the side! That means he prepares raw stones for sale while grinding
lenses for your vintage glasses. This astute fellow is the ninth in his
line. Use him to create Fran•táge greetings for your cat loving
I started out sponging some distress ink on the edges of the buttery tan card stock. I then stamped F. E. Linus with distress ink, and stamped the flourish from the Cling Jumbo Tulip set. Then I played with the Fran•táge technique, using Aged Gold Embossing Enamel and Tarnished Mica Fragments. And don’t forget the sentiment…this came from Vintage Typewriter. I stamped the paper image on a separate piece of light cream card stock and inked the edges, then stamped the ‘happy birthday’, slightly curving the clear stamps. I attached the ‘notes’ and the metal clock embellishment with Beacon Zip Dry Paper Glue and then attached to a black card base.
Thanks for stopping by, always love hearing from you!
