That time again when the folks at the Smeared and Smudged forum get together and wander around in blogland en mass.
This month it's all about getting "A Little Steamy". Something in the steampunk style.
It really is worth your while to go look at all the creations made by my fellow artists. They are such a talented bunch.
This card has been made not only for this bloghop but also as hubby's birthday card. Just in time for this weekend.
The image used is from KennyK. Coloured with my promarkers with a touch of copper watercolour paint for the metal elements. Ink distressed with "weathered wood" DI.
The background panel is copper pearlised card, embossed with TH retro circles then that DI rubbed over the raised bits. The cog die cuts are again TH, heat embossed with copper. Just the one thin layer to give a distressed look.
The sentiment was stamped in two parts, again copper embossed. The two bits were individually mounted onto coiled wire with a couple of old watch parts.
This was all mounted onto a black card base.
The sketch followed was that of the S&S november challenge. So I will be posting in there after today
Here's the list of the other folks for you to go visit
