MMM - Challenge 16 - Metal Steampunk

This week over at MMM the criteria is:


This week continuing our STEAMPUNK theme we would like to see someMETAL on your cards or projects.
I am really enjoying the Steampunk theme, never having tried it before and so delighted to have been chosen in the top 3 two weeks running:)


The only real metal I used on my card was a coiled wire, some staples and a few cogs. 
The BP is from GRaphic 45 and I cut out the image of the debutante and ran it through a Tim Holtz EF and highlighted parts with gold paste. On the background I added some gloss to the flowers and the dressmaking model and alphabet bubbles to the words.
I embossed a strip of gold mirri with the TH EF and coloured with alcohol inks. I cut some cogs with my Silhouette and coloured them in the same way. I raised this part on foam dots and the dress form image came from BTFC and I distressed with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade and added the watch parts and a small bow. I finished off with some green staples and a coiled wire. The base card was white A5 and the edges distressed with the same DI's.





























Thanks for visiting today:
