Get Well Steampunk Style
Here is my second Steampunk card to share with you - what do you think? Having printed out some toppers and backing papers from the soon to be released Steampunk Emporium CD from Kraftyhands I die cut a pile of gears/cogs from gold mirri card using the Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets set. After using a few on my first card which I distressed, I decided to get out some alcohol inks (now these don't come out very often as I haven't really mastered the inky, grungy look) and ink some of them up.
You can see the result of the inking a little better here.
Now, I know that this is probably not what most people think of as 'traditional' Steampunk, but I quite like it! However, it probably is still a bit on the 'clean' side, so I am off to do some research on the internet to see if I can come up with anything a bit closer to what you see in the magazines.
I am adding this card to the Make It Monday - Linky Party #114
