Steampunk Christmas


                                                                                 

Hello there,
Today my creation with the Steampunk Christmas sheet, if you like steampunk than this is really it! And even if you feel uncomfortable with steampunk ......if you work with these stamps you will change your thoughts about that. Because they are a mix of the raw style of steampunk and the  well-known elegance and beauty of Chocolate Baroque. This is definitely one of my favourites!

 I have used a water coloured(salt technique)  piece of paper from my stash in brown/blue shades. Most of the time I make a lot of these papers at one time so I have always something to grab..... I embossed the steampunk flowers with gold EP and coloured them with water based markers. I also used the gear border die from Tim Holtz and added an acrylic tag. All the stamps I've used are from the same sheet.
Hope to have given you inspiration, creative greetz,

  4. Absolutely striking & I love the way you have used those colours together. The salt background provides a lovely softness to the harsher metallic imagery of Steampunk.
