Steampunk'ed Car

Welcome

I really enjoyed making this card for a young steam punk fan.


The original stamp for the Model T delivery van had other elements to it, so I trimmed it to what I wanted, and then added the steampunk elements.
Love the way the cog fitted into the lines of the stamp.


The cogs in the background were some I had previously cut, and then I cut some more to fill the design.


The panel on the left was stamped using a stamp from the 
 It was not quite long enough, so I split it, and added the bronze embossed sentiment in the centre.


The recipient was very happy with the card.
