Steam Punk

I have never made a Steam Punk card before but have looked at loads over the last year or two as they have been very popular. I think the craze went so well because it is a perfectly respectful card to give to a gentleman, and a little bit more progressive than the boat on the sea type card that many a gentleman recieved in the past.

I went to the craft store this week and they had a Docraft Goody bag. In amongst the items there was some from there Chronology range, including the stamp that I have used on the following card..

 The background paper was the same burgundy one that I had used in the last project, my Oriental card, I had just enough to make the background for this card. I then used My Cameo to cut a cog overlay out that I obtained from the Silhouette store. I cut it in mirri card.
I used Neenah Card 180gsm to stamp the image that I had chosen from my goodie bag and used Staz on Black Ink.
I cut a couple more cogs out again from the silhouette store and some clock hands from the silhouette store. I used just a generic white card for those and one of the cogs I enamelled up using the black enamel powder from the Debbi Moore range. The other cog and clock hands I inked up with an old ink pad from amongst my collection.
The Heart was a die cut that I found in my stash and could have come from anywhere, and because I was doing my first steam punk I felt the heart needed bling and so it has some aurora borealis gems on from Meiflowers.
So there you have it my first Steam Punk not quite as frothy as some but I think just enough to get away with

Thank tou for looking and leaving me a hello

Love debby xx
