Hello peeps, I've got a Steampunk card for you today :) I created this as another entry to Chocolate Baroque's colour challenge #28 http://chocolatebaroquechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/. I love Steampunk, and these punky fish images are among my favourites! I have used stamps from CB Steampunk Funky Fish, Steampunk Sea World, Underwater and Words of Inspiration sets. I have also used Tando Creative masks - Cogs and Leaves 1; Distress Inks - Twisted Citroen, Squeezed Lemonade, Crushed Olive, Chipped Saphire and Cracked Pistachio.
I blended the Di's onto a piece of white card, dried it, then faux bleached with water randomly over the panel. I dried it again and stencilled the cogs in yellow and the leaves in green. The leaves double as seaweed.
I stamped some images onto another piece of white card and water coloured them with the DI's. I then cut them out and edged them with blue ink. I stamped some bubbles onto the background panel and added Glossy Accents.
I added Glossy Accents to the bubble machine image as well.
When the bubbles were dry I blended blue ink around the edges of the background panel and matted it onto blue card. I then attached it onto a base card. I stamped a sentiment onto white card in blue ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I then die cut, embossed and stencilled the sentiment panel and attached it to the card with dimensional glue. I attached the other images in the same way. I'm really pleased with this project, I think this design is suitable for male or female cards and for a variety of occasions.
Thanks for popping in today, I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog and will come back soon :)
