Your Art Needs You!!!

Good Morning Crafty Friends and Followers

Well one more day and I will be home.  I hope you have all been keeping well and I know that I will have a lot of catching up to do on your creations whilst I have been away.

Today's card is yet again Steampunk, sorry to those of you who don't like steampunk but I love it but I hope it still inspires you to give it a try.

The base of the card is 8 x 8 Kraft card to which I have layered a piece of gold pearlescent card onto it.  I cut out a piece of white Stampography card and stamped images from Aly's Inky Fingers Time Flies collection and Steampunk collection.  I added a wooden cog from Crafty-Emblies which I have inked with Dew Drops Cosmic Copper.  I have plaited together some raffia and attached to the card.  Using a stippling brush I have stippled Tim Holtz Distress ink antique linen and wild honey.  The corner image has been embossed with WOW powders as has the key.  I have also heat embossed the sentiment.  I have added Card Candi and a padlock to finish the card off.

Thank you for stopping by today
I look forward to visiting all your blogs on my return.
Take care and enjoy your day
Hugs xxxxx
