Ok, it's happened, I am now officially addicted to steampunk! I love making these cards, it's a lot of work though and you fet so filthy with al the ink and paints, but FUN!!! Here's another one. This time I used not one but two digi's from Make it Crafty, the Clockhouse and Alexander. The DP is by Action, that's a shop that sells stuff dirt cheap so the paper blocks 6 x 6'are only € 1,39, can you believe it? Now the clock and gears have had the same treatment as on my previous steampunk post, but now I used a really darkblue acryllic paint and Crackle Paint Tarnished Brass.
On the inside I used the postagestamp sentiment by Whimsy along with the happy birthday postmark stmap. In the foreground I used an ancient die by Sizzlits with a filmstrip in which I stamped another sentiment. In the middle circle I stamped clocks with Maya stamps.
Here’s a detailpicture of the digital images I used. Because I wanted the clockhouse in the middle of the clock I had to print it at a really small size. When you see how detailed this image is you can imagine how I nearly needed a magnifying glass to colour, but once I made up my mind to do something, well you know I don’t let go LOL!
I made the flowers with brown wrapping paper. First I punched some flowers which I stamped with a textstamp and darkbrown Stazon and then I distressed them with walnut stain. I crumbled them up, opened them again and attached several layers with a copper brad.
