Flying high with Steampunk birdie

I've finally had a moment to share this card :). A bit late for me as a Steampunk DT sample for our current Fashionable Stamping Challenge - but definitely not too late for you to join in!




For my background I used K&Co paper and I stamped some lovely clock gears (PaperArtsy) and grungy corners (Stempelglede).




The birdcage & birdie (Tim Holtz) were cut from metal and embossed with embossing folders. I also added a few metal embellishments and sequens to adorn them both.



For an added 'lush' I sprinkled a generous amounts of gold and copper embossing powders and enamels and using Mrs Stampendous's Encrusted Jewel technique, I set in it some lovely copper sequens and real watch gears.




Final touch - a grunge paper rose coloured with Rusty Hinge distress ink ;).

That's all from me for now. Stay tunned as I will be sharing something truly magical with you later this week...;-))

Big hugs
