steampunk cards

... a day off today so i had a mess around with some die cutting and stamping!!

... the clock faces on the tag are overlayed with the same image embossed into waste packaging plastic and cut out, highlighted with archival black.
i kinda like black/grey tassels!

one of the mica powders i love the best is not from perfect pearls but is by cosmic shimmer ... its the dark bronze mica pigment and i use it a lot.  its got a lovely brown/green aged patina to it. [individual pots from Crafty Devils] i used it on the larger cogs and over perfect medium stamped image of the tophat men!  they look a bit ghostly!

i'm trying to make some more 'masculine' cards for fathers day .... not sure if these say 'daddy' but hey ho.


  1. Great masculine cards, love the steampunk theme and they are embellished beautifully. Tracy x

  2. Very cool cards! love the colour and texture you've got on the cogs in the second one.

  3. day well spent I think............
