A Little Bit of Steampunk?

Evening Folks
Well I am still feeling under the weather with this cold.  Have had the last couple of days off work as just did not feel up to it but am going back tomorrow.  This cold has really knocked the wind out of my sails.  It really does not help with all the cold weather we are having at the moment.  We did have some snow yesterday in our part of the country but most of that has melted away today.  I must be feeling pretty low as I have missed going to my monthly card making workshop tonight.  My Mum has gone so she will be able to fill me in on what I have missed.

Anyway, todays card share is one I have made using the new Papermania Chronology collection.  They are simply perfect for doing vintage and steampunk themed cards.  I think I have captured steampunk but will let you decide.


I used the sketch over at Here Come The Boys as the basis for my card.  The central image is a stamp from the range.  I stamped it onto some of the paper from the paper pack and heat embossed it so it has a nice shine.  Everything has been distressed within an inch of its life lol.  The metal corners and the metal cogs seemed to fit nicely in with the theme.  The sentiment was one of the toppers from the range which I just cut down in size to fit.

Thanks for popping by and would love to hear what you think of my attempt at steampunk.  Very much out of my comfort zone with this one.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Here Come The Boys - use sketch
Cards Galore - Anything goes
Mayzy Art - Anything goes
Lexis Creations - Anything goes
Inky Impressions - Add a sentiment
The Squirrel and The Fox - Anything goes

Hi Mags

Loving this very much!

I saw it on my dashboard first .. .. it really stood out.

Sorry to hear you are not well. Hope you get better quickly. Lots of germs going round at the moment. If you miss a crafty class you must really be "off it"!!

Take care.

Love Jules xx
