Vintage Steampunk Card

Good Afternoon

A Vintage style card today using Sam Poole's SteamPunk Dreams A5 Stamp Plate.  I started with a large piece of card about 9x9 and covered it in modge podge and added some black crumpled up tissue paper left over from a box of shoes.  I highlighted the tissue paper with copper gilding wax.  Over that I added a piece of vintage paper and stamped the phrase with black archival and copper cosmic shimmer embossing powder.

The steampunk dressform was stamped with Black Archival and embossed with copper embossing powder on  torn velum, inked around the edges with  Vintage Photo and the top half of the image coloured with a silver pen.  I added some torn and inked text paper and pieces of lace to create layers under the torn vellum.    The heart was cut with a sizzix die and embossed with a folder from darice.  The key comes from one of the Papermania Chronology Sets.

The flower was made with some black lacy material from my stash by attaching to a round of cardstock and twisting the fabric and attaching with a hot glue gun.  I gathered the lace and sewed it in a round and attached it with the hot glue gun under the flower.  I added one of the fancy pearls from Creative Expressions and some feathers and pearls.

 Hope you like it and thanks for coming by.  Please drop in tomorrow for another Steampunk style card.

Hope you have a creatively crafty day.

Hi Lilygee
This is an amazing vintage steampunk card and every piece adds texture to it making it very tactile.
I really like how you have made the background and have just recently bought some mod podge and now I know what I can do with it.
The lace flower is stunning.

Dear Ria

How nice it is to hear your sweet comments - yes do it - easy peasy background that looks stunning - unfortunately most of it is covered up here but it takes two minutes flat and when you add the gilding wax you will be amazed at how effective it looks.
