Blue Destination


I have got in to Steampunk a bit more now, and I have built my Steampunk stash up a bit!  The base card is white, a background stamp of assorted cogs has been used  to create a border around the edges of the card in Peacock Feathers Distress ink.  Then the edges are tinted with a blending tool using the  same ink.  A piece of black card is embossed using a stencil of cogs in a machine.  The edges are torn and guilding wax is applied to highlight the raised pattern.  There are screw heads in each corner of the stencil, these have been glazed to give them a raised shiny appearence.   The wax also gives the card a metallic look.  The panel is matted on to a piece of paper that has been coloured around the edges with a silver metallic marker pen, then stamped in Black Soot Distress ink with the cogs.  The edges are then torn to match the panel.  A piece of white card is coloured with the distress ink using a blending tool, then the cogs background stamp is used with water for a faux bleaching effect.  An altered image collage stamp is used as the focal image, then it is stamped again on a piece of white card.  The face and the clock hand are cut out and glazed.  When dry they are decoupaged on to the art work.  The edges are torn and then it is matted on to some silver satin card that has been die cut and embossed in a machine.  A sentiment panel is created in the same way as the focal panel.  Both panels are then attached to the card.
