While moving some boxes of stamps about the other day I came across the one marked steampunk. So I decided before putting it away again to have a little play, this is the card that I ended up making. The roses and the cogs are from Chocolate Baroque off of the set called Steampunk Butterfly, and the distressed corners are from a set by Sheena Douglas call Ageing Beautifully. I started with an A6 piece of card and covered it with distress inks, after this had dried off I over stamped with the cogs and corner embossing with gold embossing powder. I then stamped the roses and also embossed with the gold embossing powder before colouring with distress markers. I then cut them out and shaped them to give a bit of dimension before sticking them on with glue gel. I then coloured a larger piece of card using the same colours and over stamped lightly using a matching colour with the cogs (they are so faint you can hardly see them). last of all I popped it all onto a brown A5 card base and used an All occasions Die for the Happy Birthday.
The challenge over at Stamping Sensations this month is Flower Power so I'm going to enter this card.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
