Hi everyone, it's JULIE here today hosting the blog. Did you know Cheery Lynn has the most amazing selection of Steampunk dies and Embossing plates ? You can check them all out HERE. I have used a small selection of these dies on my card today and hope it inspires you to try some Steampunk if you haven't before.
My border was cut out in a dark brown textured cardstock and shaded with Inka Golds for a rusty aged look. I layered onto a cream cardstock to add shadow and offset 2 layers on the side of my card with foam strips for depth.
I used the same technique on my frame, by mounting onto corrugated card and fussy cutting around the edges. I love the detail in the wings die of the feathers, these were layered behind my stamped La Blanche image.
My key was heat embossed with Silver powder and as this melted I sprinkled some Vintage Photo Distress powders onto it for a rusty effect. My flower I added some microbeads into the centre.
My die cut layers were mounted onto my Frantaged background, I added some foam between the layers for added dimension and glued other layers flat together.
