First Steampunk Card

 This design is my first venture in to Steampunk, so I just used the limited products and materials that I had to hand.  Black card is used for the base card.  The background card is a piece of texture printed card that has been embossed in a machine and lightly sanded back.  Guilding wax is applied over the embossed panel, picking up the raised areas.  Micro beads and glitter rocks are added for more texture.  The panel is matted on to mirror card.  A fob watch image is stamped on to some card that has been colour blended with distress inks, using black ink.  The image is then cut out, the whites of the eyes are coloured with a white fine liner pen, and triple heat embossing is used to glaze the watch.  It is then attached to the panel with a brad, and a couple more are added as embellishments.  A sentiment is stamped on to card that has been colourblended with distress inks.  The side edges are torn and coloured with a silver Krylon pen.  Silver liquid pearls are added on three corners of the sentiment panel.   A piece of silver mesh is cut to size, the background panel is layered on top, then the sentiment panel is layered on top again.  A brad and some pinflair glue are used to attach both panels and the mesh to the base card.
