Crafty Cardmakers have a theme of Steampunk, and I decided to have a bash at it. I really don't know whether I have got the essence of it or not - but it is my version.
I put together a collage of images from Graphics Fairy which I manipulated in various ways in PaintNet (don't have Photoshop - it would probably defeat me!!), printed it in greyscale on to Ranger Manila card and then use various distress inks over it. I have used Cogs, Butterflies and the Old Jalopy from Tim Holtz. Inked the cogs and butterflies, and cut the Jalopy in metal. I used silver dabber ink on parts, and outlined round the windows in red.
I am entering this for the following challenges:
Crafty us Crazy - use something new
Papertake Weekly - Fancy a Punch (or dies)
Creative Cowgirls - Anything Goes
Dream Valley - Dig out the old and use with the new (the images for the background I have had since last year, so that is my old, and the dies are my new
One Stitch at a Time - Anything goes
I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
