Lights, Camera ... Steampunk!

Hi everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a great start?

I have a Steampunk stylesque card to share today which is one of a set of 5 cards and a tag that I made for issue 108 of Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine.  I can't tell you how much I enjoyed making them, and so I hope you won't mind if I share them on my blog over the next week. :)

I was asked to use some Stampendous stamps for this commission which worked perfectly for the Steampunk theme (the one I've used on this card is called Poised Gent).  The gears were die-cut from chipboard using my Tim Holtz Gadget Gears die set, and then painted with metallic paint.  I then dabbed bronze, copper and gold VersaColor inks all over to add texture and detail to them. The gold in the corners is the fabulous Frantage aged gold embossing enamel - love this stuff!!
