Steampunk Pussy Cat

Welcome

I discovered this image as a freebie last month - I found it on the last day it was available, and was able to download it from here, the Gecko Galz Steam Punk Challenge - they have a free image each month.


I sized the image and printed it, and distressed and sponged the edges with Tea Dye DI.
The mat behind the image was also distressed and sponged with the same ink, and I embossed some gear images on the corners that would be visible with Copper EP.


I also added Glossy accents over the lens's of the glasses
As it was a birthday card, I embossed the vertical sentiment down the one side 


To create a subtle background I took some random gear images and stamped over the card with Versamark ink, then brushed on bronze perfect pearls 


In the bottom right corner I added a die cut of cogs in a mat finished bronze card


Thi inside was finished with some washi tape that kept with the theme.

Great Steampunk card Maxine, the colours work well along with the cogs to really pull off the style.

Such a lovely card this is Maxine. Very posh! I really like the image which is super CUTE. This is the third time cats are coming to me: first time on a card then an acrylic painting with a cat was gifted to me and the third time, I saw a cat in real life outside the community centre where I went to get my second jab. Infact the real life cat was very similar to your cat image.
Certainly, there is a message here.

Hope you and yours are well,

Monica

Great use of embossing on this card. It creates great texture and dimension. The glossy accents are the perfect touch on the glasses.

Thank you for joining us at Creative Knockouts for our Embossing Delight challenge.

Ooh what fabulous washi tape. I do like this card, like cats and steampunk so it is right up my alley (as they say over here). Great background you made and the diecut cogs etc look just perfect.
