Kraftyhands meets Steampunk

Kraftyhands are launching their new Steampunk Emporium later this month (in fact if you are able to make it to the NEC this weekend you may be able to pick one up there as they have a limited number available at the show).  I've always liked the idea of having a go at Steampunk so was very excited to  hear about this CD and even more excited when it arrived in the post!

The CD is full of fabulous images - there are card making sets, rocker card sets, as well as backing papers, toppers, a photo frame and even a clock project.  Now, my style of crafting tends to be quite clean, with lots of straight lines and everything all lined up - not intentional, that is just the way it is :-) so I have to admit that as well as being fun, playing with these images has tested me a bit.
Here is my first attempt, which I have tried to grunge up a bit by distressing the mirri card (I really must try not to use mirri card on EVERY card I make...) which you can see in a bit more detail here.
I am adding this card to the Make It Monday - Linky Party #114
Materials Used:
Kraftyhands - Steampunk Emporium CD
Spellbinders - Sprightly Sprockets, Classic Circles
Crafts U Print - Crafty Bob's Premium Gloss Craft Photo Paper
Craftwork Cards - white card
Core'dinations - sanding block
Gold mirri card from stash
