Hat's off to you!

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I had a lovely morning out with hubby, I even went and did some clothes shopping which isn't something I particularly enjoy but I needed to new dresses for my cousin's wedding and another cousin's engagement next month.  Anyway was really pleased that I got this out of the way.

This afternoon I have been watching some uTube clips regarding different techniques which I plan to have a go at over the next few days.  Tonight's card is again started at Kath's last week and finished today.


1. 8 x 8 scalloped cream card which I have wrapped black lace around brown card and matted and layered onto the base card.
2. The second layer is cream card distressed with Wild Honey.
3. The Topper is paper from Paper Cellar Victorian Classic, I stamped cogs down one side and the hat which are from Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells stamps.  The hat has been embossed using gold distress embossing powder.
4. I decoupaged the flowers then added wooden cogs, a key and a sentiment from my stash.  

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

Nice presentation of a steampunk theme! The palette really communicates a vintage feel and that is carried through with the embellishments, particularly that wonder black lace! Thanks for dropping this off by our house at 613 Avenue Create!

A brilliant card, love the papers, and the super design. I hate clothes shopping too, most things are far too long, and I object to paying extra for petite which use far less material! x
