Hello everyone, I have another Steampunk card for you today. This is one of several cards which I created for the Chocolate Baroque DT blog 15 minute cards spot. All the cards featured only take 15 minutes to make, which was quite a challenge for me but an enjoyable one :) For this card I have used CB stamp sets - Steampunk Butterfly and Punky Flowers; Distress Inks - Hickory Smoke, Mustard Seed, Fossilised Amber, Salty Ocean, and Broken China. I also used Versafine ink to stamp with - Smokey Grey.
I stamped the Butterfly and a large flower directly onto a white base card. I then put some DI inks onto my glass mat to use as a pallet for water colouring the images.
One of the things I love about these stamps is the amount of detail in them. I love painting and colouring, and CB stamps tick all the boxes for me. I just added water to the inks with a fine paint brush.
I completed the design with a stamped sentiment and blended ink around the edges to create some light and dark contrast.
I surprised myself by actually making a card in under 15 minutes, and I really enjoyed the challenge :) I love these colours they are so bright and cheerful, I think this card would suit all sorts of occasions. Thank you for visiting my blog, hope to see you again soon :)
