Good morning 🙂 Today is the anniversary of a special couple, whom I’m proud to call good friends. I wanted to make a steampunky card for them, so went on a search for an appropriate image to use…and found this one..Steampunk Heart…at the Delicious Doodles by Teri Sherman shop 🙂 Perfect!!! I colored the image with the Copic markers that I’ve managed to aquire (it’s going to be a sloooowww process, but they can be used with my SN, thank God). I didn’t know what to do after that, so took inspiration from this sketch at The Sketchy Challenges:
I love that part of this sketch is to challenge you to try a medium that you’ve never tried. It’s so easy to get into a rut, that it’s great to get a kick in the pants like this every once in awhile. I cracked my sticky embossing powder earlier this week (it’s been sitting on a shelf for YEARS, unopened), and it was so cool the last time, I decided to try another medium with it….foil. Now, I’m talking about a roll of foil that has been sitting for about 7 years, because the glue that came with the kit was dried out, lol. So I used a Stampin’ Up stamp and got to work on a patterned paper from Steampunk Botanicals paper pad from Recollections …..I was quite pleased with how it turned out 🙂 Since it seemed that I was diving into some long forgotton/neglected items in my stash, it’s no surprise that I found the black cut-out ribbon at the bottom of the bin…. A black sentiment was done with (yup, old) alpha stickers, and I added some screw head brads to finish this off after popping the heart up with some foam dots.
I’d also like to enter this in the following challenges:
Simon Monday Challenge – Shimmer and Shine
As You Like It Challenge – Favorite Paper Pad..Steampunk Botanicals…why?? I have a hard time with Steampunk designs, so this gives me a good base, as well, there are so many designs that can be used in other genre cards.
