A touch of Steam Punk


This is a scheduled post so I hope it comes up.   Today being Wednesday it that means its time for  Simons Says Stamp Challenge  again, The theme this week is Anything goes, and I have taken that literally and had a go at a bit of Steam Punch.




I spent a lot of time on altering things that are not even seen on here but boy did I love getting mucky, Firstly I run the base card through a Darice Embossing Folder , then sprayed it with Cafe au Lait, Olive Green and Gold Glimmer mist, them I used a Spellbinder nestie to cut out the image mat, distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, then tore and distressed with the same ink a piece of Bo-Bunny Timepiece collection Backing paper.  Before assembling the card I tapped some Stampendous Aged Ivory embossing enamel along the bottom edge of the card and heat embossed until melted.


The Stamp is also from the Bo-Bunny Time Piece  stamp set, the Seam binding was dyed with the same three Glimmer mists as the card.  The metal embellishments are all from the Tim Holtzs Idea-ology range.  Can you spot the deliberate mistake (I took the picture before my glue had dried.)  Wold you believe all these products are from Simon Says Stamp.



And don’t forget as usual Heidi has donated a $50 Dollar Gift voucher to spend on the website.



have a good day

Hi Jacqui, love your steampunk card! I just had my first try at steampunk myself (previous post) and loved doing that style. It is a lot of work though and yes, its messy LOL! Your card is absolutely fabulous! I'm currently working on another card, hope it turns out half as good as yours, then I will be happy ;-)
Hugs, Frea
