I didn't have any cogs and I kept seeing them on steampunk cards, so I had a go at making some myself using some build a snowflake dies. Many of the elements of this card have been copper leafed and embossed. I also embossed the backing paper that I created using distress inks. For full details on how I put this card together look here.
This is a close up of some of the elements that I made or coloured. The little key on the right was a gold coloured earring that I took the back off of. The heart (originally silver coloured) was a charm from a necklace that I bought and posted a little while ago. The buttons were also originally silver coloured.
Lots of touches of gold pen on this image. I have dragged a bit of vintage photo ink over the image as it stood out too much from the rest of the card.
This is a clearer image of the dry embossing.
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Fab N Funky - Go mad with embossing
Kenny K - Vintage / Grunge
Stamp Something - Use a Digi stamp
