Gears and Steampunk

Good Evening Crafty Friends and Followers

Another busy day at the studio today, preparing for the show next Thursday on Create and Craft.  Had a lovely evening last night Ian cooked a meal and it was delicious, he puts me to shame as I hate cooking, Rick does all ours!  I sure am spoilt both at home and here in Leeds.

Today's card is a mixure of stamping and adding a ready made topper.  I do like to mix my techniques.



Base card is Silver Pearlescent A5 card
First layer is Core'dinations card which matches nicely with the topper.
The stamped images are from Aly Inky Fingers Steampunk set which have have stamped using Flitterglu and Gilding flakes.  I then layered them onto black card and added them to the first layer.
Added the topper and sentiment which are both from Kraftyhands with foam pads to give dimension.
The hat with goggles is from Crafty-Emblies and I have used glossy accents on the goggles.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
