Steampunk

Good Afternoon  to all my crafty friends and followers

This is my first post for today and I hope you can pop back later.  As you all know I do love my steampunk and when I was looking through some challenges there was a couple that had this as their theme!  I had made a couple of steampunk DT cards yesterday so was still in the mood to make this card.  Me,  I could make these type of cards all the time LOL.  I made this card quite quickly as I still have quite a bit of work to do the next couple of days as I am helping Kay Rutter at a workshop on Thursday, then Saturday and Sunday will be working at the Leigh Show.


The base card is pale blue and replicates the Labels one Spellbinder Die.  
From my stash I have used a piece of card that I printed off from My Craft Studio Tinkering with Steampunk CD which I have cut out using Spellbinder Die Labels One.
I stamped the image which is from Personal Impressions using Dew Drop VersaMagic Night Sky onto Stampography card and then cut out with the above die.
I then used a sponge and dabbed Dew Drop Brilliance Cosmic Copper.  Using my Copic pens I colourd the wing, hat and watch.
The sentiment is from Creative Expressions Art Phrases stamp sheet designed by Sam Poole which is stamped with Cosmic Copper and then dabbed with Aspen Mist.
To finish off I have added 2 wooden cogs from Crafty-Emblies and a metal clock charm.  I then used Glossy Accents on the watch face and goggles.



Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
