Sir Steampunk

Welcome

Firstly I extend a welcome to two new followers - Karen Letchworth  and Liv Frische, who unfortunately appears not to have a blog.  

This was made with a steampunk fan in mind!   
I bought the stamps while in Australia - they are by an Aussie firm, Darkroom Door.  
Their stamps are top quality, with wonderful detail and they stamp well.


I started by stamping the images in Memento Graphite Black ink, using the Misti and masking the images as I went to get the dimension, and although I had to stamp multiple times, the detail was retained .


The cogs were sitting on my desk, so I coated them with Copper Inka Gold paint and added them to the corner


I then embossed the word TIME (from the same stamp set) in various spots around the card.  
The final detail was to doodle the wobbly lines around the edge.


To finish I stamped the (?) Steam engine that came in the set on the left inside of the card.

I am linking this to:

Hi Maxine, a great masculine card, love the steam punk images from Darkroom Door, with the cogs, I agree that it is a steam engine of some sort on the inside of the card. (I bought a set of DRD stamps shall we say mixed scrap (? thinking something may have gone wrong with the other stamps in the set) stamps and got a little over 2 full stamp sets for $25 Aussie dollars, love the variety they included and they stamp beautifully. Have a wonderful week... Megan
