It feels like ages since I last blogged so here is the card I made for Mark’s birthday. ‘Simple’ can’t really be used to describe Steampunk but it does describe the simple layout. The image was stamped using versamark ink then embossed using a mixture of Kettle copper and Brass embossing powder. Although you can’t tell from the photo, I used a silver glitter pen to make some of the metallic pipes shiny.
Inks: Versamark, Versafine Vintage sepia, Distress ink Brushed corduroy
Card: white, metallic patterned, background paper
Stamps: Oxford Impression Steampunk elements
Other: Large brads, gold nail-heads, silver glitter pen, small silver cog (watch part), embossing powders (mix of Kettle copper and Brass), brown water colour pencil to colour the wheels
