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

Materials Used:
Kraftyhands - Steampunk Emporium CD
Spellbinders - Sprightly Sprockets and Classic Circles
Ranger - Denim Alcohol Ink
Crafts U Print - Crafty Bob's Premium Gloss Craft Photo Paper
Craftwork Cards - white card
