Steampunk Card

Ive gone all steampunk this week for my Creative Expressions DT card. I've used Sam Poole's Art Sayings stamps together with the Eco Green Steampunk Accessories 1 stamp set.


I covered a card blank with some blue paper and stamped some of the Eco Green stamps over it with walnut stain Distress ink, then I distressed the edges and edged with walnut stain.
I adhered some aluminium foil to a piece of card and embossed it with a Texture Fade, then I covered it in black acrylic paint and wiped of the excess before it dried. I then coloured it with ultramarine and timber brown Stazon. I coloured the main image with stormy sky, vintage photo and walnut stain Distress ink and wrapped some wire round it. I stamped a couple of the stamps onto the aluminium covered card with black Stazon, cut them out and adhered them to the card together with some cogs, game spinner and the words.

  1. Amazing piece of work Hazel - love it. Is the circle of card at top right (behind the spinner) a stamp? Not seen that one before.
