Cogs and Lace

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends and Followers

A quick post from me this morning!  I got my new computer yesterday so in the process of transferring files etc from lappy to PC.  This new computer is going to take some getting used to as it is the new Windows 8!  Anyway less about me, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, I was totally spoilt as usual.

Today's card is all about Steampunk, now you all know I love steampunk and I have got a few items which are ideal for altered art so I am hoping to give these the steampunk make over.

6 x 6 black base I have matted silver mirri textured card on the base.
The second layer is from Kraftyhands Steampunk Emporium CD which has been printed onto pearlescent card.  I have wrapped lace around this before attaching it to the base of the card.
I have printed off the topper and edged this in purple using my Copic's pen.
The cogs are from Crafty-Emblies these are a UK family based company and are a great source for getting just about any wooden embellishment you want!
I have embossed the cogs and then used Fran-tage which gives them a fabulous texture.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
