I’m trying to catch up with my blogging after a few curve balls that life has thrown at me lately! I made this card for a swap, and decided to use one of my many KennyK stamps. I purchased a whole whack of images when Kenny’s store closed down, and haven’t used even a fraction of them!! I haven’t done a steampunk theme project for ages, so Inspector Em was the perfect image to change that!! I colored her with Copics, adding some accents and highlights with gold and white gel pens.
After fussy cutting the image out I popped it on some striped paper that I’d distressed and inked. I layered pieces of damask patterned paper (from the same collection as the stripes), and some subtle printed purple, that I’d embossed with a gear theme Sizzix embossing folder. I die cut a number of gears with some Echo Park dies and arranged them around the image. A strip of black lace, topped with a chain die cut (Elizabeth Craft) added a bit more texture and interest.
The sentiment is a ….. RUB ON….. !!!!!!! And it actually rubbed on, after sitting in a folder for how many years!!!
