Steampunk Card

Even though this card seems to have a lot going on, it went together pretty quick.  I made it for a Steampunk swap, so the image (from Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante line) was the inspiration.  I cut several gears - using my Spellbinders gear dies - out of black, bronze, and champagne glitter paper scraps.  I used Distress Inks, antique linen and tea stain, on the card base and edged it with tuxedo black.  I did lay this all out before I adhered anything to get the placement just right.  I added a few flowers from my stash as well as a couple of metal buttons.  Topped it with a tulle bow, done!  Love the look and I used things I had, win-win!  Thanks for looking.

Wow! This sure is Steam Punk-y! Very cool. Every addition, adds to the last. Reminds me of a mixed media page. Kudos...
