Glaeken & Lady Audrey

Two more fabulous projects from Katrina using stamps from the new Octopode Factory range;

Glaeken Card

You will need :-
Glaeken stamp from The Octopede Factory
U - mount Vintage Treasures stamp set
U- mount Vintage Illision stamp set
7 Gypsies Steampunk set
Bo Bunny 6x6 Time piece paper pad collection
What ever you like to colour in with
Distress ink - brushed corduroy
Koi water brush medium
1. Stamp out Glaeken, colour him in and cut him out.
2. From the Vintage Treasures set stamp out using the distress ink the grid and the saying on to white card. Immediately after take your water brush and draw the ink in from the sides. If you want more colour just brush your water brush over the ink pad lightly and paint it onto your stamped image, that will give you a darker colour. Leave to dry. I then stamped the little light bulb in the top left corner and from the 7 Gypsies set the do not disturb in the bottom left and the plate IX on a separate scrap of card, again do the same with your water brush.
3. From the Vintage Illisions set stamp out the larger of the train drawing with the distress ink and again pull the ink in from the edges with your water brush. Leave to dry.
4. Cut out all your stamped images then put the card together. Use up all the scraps for the background for this card, tear 3 strips of the Bo Bunny papers and glue them to a card blank. Stick on the grid with Glaeken on top and the other images at the side as in the picture. You could add a sentiment instead of the saying if you wanted to.

Lady Audrey Card

You will need :-

Lady Audrey stamp from The Octopode Factory

Black Ink
What ever you like to colour with
Bo Bunny 6x6 Timepiece collection paper pad
Alterations die Gadget Gears
An alternative to the mat shape I used you could use either Alterations die mini Baroque or Ornamental
Screw head brads by Creative Expressions - coming soon!
1. Cover your card blank with one of the papers from the paper pad.
2. Cut out with your dies a mat and a couple of the small gears from another of the papers ( great to use up your scraps)
3. Stamp out Lady Audrey colour her in and cut her out.
4. Cut a couple of thin strips from the stripy paper, I added a die cut buckle to match her hair but any other embellishment would do.
5. To put the card together glue the mat to the middle of the card, a strip of paper top and bottom, Lady Audrey on top the mat and the cogs either side of the mat with a brad inside. There is plenty of room to add a sentiment if needed.
