Steampunk Grumpies - Smeared and Smudged blog hop & new digi release

Howzit Everyone!
Today is our Smeared and Smudged FB group's monthly member blog hop and the theme this month is Steampunk!  We, the Smeared Ink design team, are also excited to introduce you to the newest members of SI's Grumpie collection, Steampunk Grumpies.

I had the pleasure of creating with Top Hat Steampunk Grumpie and made 2 projects for this hop and the new image release.  You probably got here from Susan's blog and your next stop is Rebecca.  Here's the blog roll for you to hop along with us!  Enjoy!

SMEARED AND SMUDGED MEMBER BLOG HOP

   I had fun creating this Grumpie Mob card announcing the arrival of the new Steampunk Grumpies...they're Heeeeere!  LOL


 My 2nd project is an ATC with a very Gentlemanly sentiment from a quote by Brian McKnight that I thought was perfect for my Top Hat Steampunk Grumpie.


I created both projects in Photoshop CS6 first and then printed them out on Neenah solar white cardstock.  The Grumpies are coloured with Copic markers with metallic gold gel pen and Promarker details.   The backgrounds are done with a sienna brown Derwent pastel pencil and a Dove Blender pen.  I distressed the edges of both with Tim's Paper Distresser tool and edged with gold Promarker and I applied Tea Dye Distress Ink to the Grumpie mob background.  The ATC is mounted onto black cardstock and the card panel is matted onto lime and apple green cardstocks, borders cut with my Perfect Layers tools, then black cardstock folded to make the card.  But before I adhered it to the black card I pressed the edges of the panel inside a long Cuttlebug cogs and gears embossing folder and highlighted the embossed design with metallic silver rub-on cream.
