MONO Steampunk

This is very different to my normal cards and thoroughly enjoyed it.Firstly l wanted it mono brown coloured,using a steampunk effect. So with my multi-circular clockfaces background which l distressed slightly and put on a browen edged card base. Then printed off multi cogs and clockwings and glazed them.Then with a QUOTE saying l distressed and matted onto a gold framed TAG, that had co-ordinate ribbon through it. Placed lace ribbon down the leftside of the card, & cutout my steampunk image, which l then coloured with my flex/promarkers. Layered it up on a distressed circle frame, then another fancy die-cut circular frame, which l trimmed round the outer frame with pleated ribbon, then finally 2 peel-off corners to finish it off.
Over on Whimsy Stamps challenge its Ribbon & Lace, Then over on Through the Purple Haze challenge its tickets or tags, on That Craft Place challenge its Monochrome, Over on I love Promarkers its #179 steampunk or mechanical, on Get Inky Challenge its RIBBONS, on Crafty Ribbons challenge its Use One or More Circles, On Country View Crafts challenge its quotations or sayings, Challenge 4 Everbody#26 Anything Goes, then on C.R.A.F.T. challenge 218 Monochromatic.
