I have another 'Steampunkesque' card to share with you today. I have played with my alcohol inks and Spellbinders embossing folder for the background together with a few more X-Cut cog dies. These were heat embossed with black EP to look like metal. I then decided to add little red gems to the centres like you see inside a watch...
The background was a mixture of Adirondak Inks in Espresso, Rust and Gold and topped off on the raised embossed parts with black Memento Ink to define them.
The Happy Birthday die is a Memory Box one and it had the same treatment as the cogs. I backed it with gold card to show through the letters. A little matting and layering and it was complete.
Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafting From The Heart - #77 ATG
Frilly & Funkie - Stamps Be Gone (Vintage, no stamps)
A quick post as it's a busy day ahead for me, so I will say goodbye for now and see you soon.
