Steampunk meets Colour Burst

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well the decorating is coming along and the room is nearly finished ready for the new furniture to be added, I have kept a few of my older pieces and can't wait for it to be finished.

Today I have a Steampunk card to share with you.

I have used the Clockwork Stencil from Clarity Stamps with Colour Burst Earth Tones


Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 cream square card which I have punched the corners with X-cut punch.
2. The first layer I have distressed with Tea Dye.
3. The topper has been created by firstly adding Versamark through the Clockworks stencil, I then embossed using WOW white embossing powder, once this had cooled down I then added a few puffs of the Sepia from the Colour Burst, spritzed some water and then heat set with my heat gun. I then cut out with SB circle die and distressed with Vintage photo. On one of the cogs I added a metal cog with a brad.
4. From my stash I cut out cog patterned card with SB scalloped circle die, matted and layered topper onto this then adhered to the card.
5. To finish off I added 3 metal cogs from my stash.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
