We have a new challenge for you over at Make My Monday today chosen by Suzi B and it's a theme dear to my heart:
I really enjoyed making my card and I hope you like it.
I decided on rich browns and teal for the card inspired by the rather sassy lady from Creative Expressions Steampunk Sirens stamp set. I stamped her with VersaFine Smokey Gray ink on thick, smooth cartridge paper which is my paper of choice for painting with Aquamarkers or Distress Stains. In this case I used Aquamarkers and then trimmed the image to a panel and inked the edges with blue and green.
I then embossed a card panel with the Papermania Tri-boss Chronology folder and inked it with Wild Honey, Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain Distress inks. I embossed a kraft card panel with the Cuttlebug cogs folder and cut this down to fit my card blank.
I inked some Maya Road chipboard cogs with VersaColor inks and added a metal Papermania cog to the centre of the larger one.
I added all the elements to the card and finished off with some text from the stamp set which I cut up because I couldn't bear to cover up the background!
I hope you all have a great week and aren't suffering to much in the extreme winds we're having at the moment.
Hugs, Fliss xx
