Hi there my Crafty Friends and Visitors,
The weather here is dry thank goodness but.....oh so cold lols !! Hope everyone is well. I am having a lovely day to myself in my craft room, no crafting as yet but I'm busy catching up with emails and computer work, whilst listening to my favourite singer, Andrea Bocelli. So....relaxing lols especially when he sings in Italian, very romantic voice and not bad looking either !! Well for today's card I have used an Imagination Craft's Steam Punk Stencil which was designed by Kath (Mucky Paws Halstead) and it is a lovely stencil. Now, I'm not in my comfort zone with steam punk and haven't made any cards using this type of image before. I'm afraid my' grungy steampunk' is more and 'elegant steam punk.' lolls ! so I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on my creation.
Make a base card from white card. Onto this matt a smaller piece of black card. Put an oblong of white card through an embossing machine along with the 'Time and Motion' stencil. Glue this to the centre of the card.
Put a square of white card through the embossing machine along with the 'Time and Motion' stencil. (The white card being slightly smaller than the black card). Using the die, cut an aperture from the white stencilled card and glue this to the black card.
Take a piece of black card and the 'Cameo Cog' stencil and put through an embossing machine. Cut out the lady and some og the cogs. Glue the cogs around the edge of the white card and add two gold strips, one to the top left and one to the bottom right.
Cut out more cog feathers from her hat using gold card, white and black. Glue these to the back of her hat. Fix the lady to the centre of the card using sticky foam pads to give a little dimension.
Cut a gold band and fix to her hat. Cut out and earring shape from gold card. Use a piece of cog, cut from gold card for her necklace and her hat ornament.
Well that's it folks, until next time take care of yourselves and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.
Love and rainbows
