Steampunk Sally

Good Afternoon to all my crafty friends and followers,

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Housework is done and so is washing hung out early this morning and now dry so get that ironed later today.

Today's card is steampunk!  I haven't done any steampunk for a while and one of my blogging friends has showcased 1 steampunk card on her blog so I just had to get my stamps out and do some cards.  Zoe did another one and they were gorgeous.  I hope you can visit her blog and see her fab cards.

Today I am showcasing a topper from Kraftyhands Steampunk Die cuts.  When Mike and Ian told me they had done these I nearly snatched their hands off LOL!  I have called the Topper I used Steampunk Sally, she sure looks like the epitome of a steampunk aviator in the land of steampunk!

Recipe & Method

1.  Card base is from Kanban which I have stamped using a fern with cogs from Hot of the Press (this was a freebie) on in Tim Holtz Distress Ink Wild Honey.
2.  The next layer I have used Stamps from Personal Impresssion which is the frame stamped in Dew Drops Brilliance Cosmic Copper.  The word "steampunk are also stamps from Personal Impressions and have been stamped using Dew Drop VersaMagic Spanish Olive.  The word Celebrate in the centre of the frame is from Hot off the Press and stamped using Dew Drops VersaMagic Gingerbread.  I have then inked the edge layer using VersaMagic Gingerbread.  To finish off the layer I then used a stimpling brush and Distress Ink Forest Moss.
3.  To complete my card I then added Steampunk Sally and a couple of clock hand charms.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
