Steampunk and Golden Dreams


Remember it is their first anniversary this month, and there are 12 prizes to be won!

This is my card for the design team, and Lozzy's Golden Dreams paper called my name.

After printing out the paper I sprayed it with gold perfect pearls to add shimmer,

then added cog wheel die cuts from gold metallic paper  - the large die cut used a Memory Box die, the individual ones used were from a set by Cheery Lynn.

The image is Steampunk Girl by Stitchy Bear, and was coloured with Prismacolor pencils. Glossy Accents was added over the watch face on the hat and her spectacle lenses.

The cog wheels on the hat, her necklace, and beside her were all coloured with Signo metallic pens.

The final detail was to stamp and emboss in copper ep the birthday greeting, cut it using a SB  circular die and layered that over a cog wheel die cut.

The final detail was to sponge the edges of the black base card with Delicata Gold Ink
