I can't believe where today has gone!!! I did plan to post this earlier but so engrossed in other DT work that before I knew it it was nearly 5.00 pm. Following all the amazing comments you left me from yesterday's post showing my steampunk samples for Jem's Designs I have made this card especially for YOU my lovely friends and followers. My style in card making is so eclectic which is just fun as I never know what each day will bring in my crafting. I hope you all enjoy seeing today's post and enjoy the rest of your day no matter what you are doing.
Recipe & Method
1. Base card is 8 x 8 square. The first layer is a piece of card from my stash which is embossed which I have sanded of the sheen and distressed with Adirondak mushroom.
2. From the steampunk pack of paper which you can purchase from Jem's Designs. I cut out the girl in the cog and the hat.
3. Using Spellbinder Sprightly Sprocket dies by Donna Salazar I cut out the six dies using matt silver pearlescent card which I then distressed using Adirondak mushroom.
4. I arranged the largest cog at the top and then added the steampunk sentiment down with a brad. I then positioned the girl undernearth this and used two more of the cogs and added buttons to the centre. After cutting out the hat I cut into the brim and added black lace and a white feather then placed onto the card. The rest of the cogs I arranged on the card and added another button and brad to them. To finish off the hat I added grey gems and another button.
This card is my way of saying a very big thank you to all your lovely comments and to also thank Susan, Linda and Sheenagh for giving me the opportunity of working with such fantastic materials.
Thank you for stopping by today
