Ranger Glacier White Pigment Ink Steampunk 'Proud' Card

Hello All! Today, I have my last Ranger sample card from Creativation this year, this time using Glacier White Pigment Ink in many ways, along with lots of Tim Holtz goodness. This one was probably my fav...I think...from the six that I made, mostly because of the Industrial Steampunk type feel that I LOVE to get messy in. And...the sentiment is a fav (from Wendy Vecchi), as I try to live by that especially while creating. Hope you enjoy.
I cut a piece of black cardstock to just under A2 card size, and die cut the brick thinlit from Tim's Mixed Media 3 from Sizzix. I used a bunch of post it notes to cover up the area without the die cutting, and I inked over the bricks with the Glacier White Pigment Ink and an Ink Tool, so that it looks like a gray mortar.
I rearranged the post it notes to cover up the bricks this time, leaving the rest of the cardstock for stamping. I stamped Tim's images from Inventor 1 and Inventor 2 from Stamper's Anonymous using the Glacier White. I love the crisp white against the black.
I trimmed a piece of Kraft Cardstock the same size as the black, and stamped the alphabets from Tim's Newsprint and Type...a fav the corners so they will show through under the bricks, using the Glacier White.
I adhered the two pieces together using Tim's Crazing Collage Medium, and applying extra inside the the look when dried.
Using a #5 Kraft Tag, I embossed the Mechanics 3D Texture Fade. I rubbed the Glacier White Pad over the raised images and then added Clear Embossing Powder over and heat set it. I inked in all the unembossed areas with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I mounted the card onto a piece of Heavystock, and added the tag to the card.  I left a wider border on the left side so I could sew a thick zig-zag stitch.
I mounted the card onto Kraft and finally onto a black cardstock base. I adhered a Mini Gear to the tag hole. Using a Paper Doll, I stamped Wendy's sentiment with Glacier White and heat embossed it with Clear Powder. I inked the edges in Pumice and added him on with foam tape so it looks like he is resting on the gear.

  1. You're getting such good results with that white pad. I'm wondering whether there's something wrong with mine as I've never managed to make it work in a way that pleased me. The white seems to fade, and not have much impact. Ah well - I can enjoy your fabulous card for now!

  6. What a great steampunk design, Anita, and particularly fun to see how this came together. You did get beautiful results with that ink, and I'm inspired to pull it out again. The bricks are so cool with the added texture of the collage medium. Brilliant make! Hugs!
