Kraftyhands October Challenge

Good Morning to all my crafty friends and followers

Today is the start of our October challenge over at Kraftyhands.  This month we want to see how you use lots of charms on your creations.  They don't necessarily have to be cards.  Don't forget to check out the design teams creations for this challenge as there are some fabulous creations. 

Now for this challenge I chose Steampunk as my theme for my card.  Now isn't that a surprise!!!!!




Recipe & Method

1.  Card base is 6 x 6 square which I have layered green lightweight card which Mike gave me.
before matting down I wrapped Baker's Twine around twice.  I then threaded a key charm to the centre with Baker's Twine in green.
2.  The second layer is gold mirri peel off which has been embossed using an embossing folder with clocks on.
3.  The topper is from Kraftyhands Steampunk die cuts.  I have glazed the pink gems with glossy accents.
4.  I threaded a piece of brown Baker's Twine through the clock charm and the wooden embellishment reads "Inspire" which is from Crafty-Emblies.

Thank you for stopping by today
Hugs xxxxx
