Mobile phone (posted by Claire)

Hi there, Claire here with another sample from 'Steampunkery and 'Steampunk Travel', I thought the mobile phone would be perfect for the man who has everything lol.


I've used Derwent pencils to colour the image and popped a die cut aperture over the top before matting on some kraft card. The lacey cogs border was also stamped on kraft. I used the digital backing paper 'Edwardian Gentlemen' and inked over with vintage photo distress ink using the Crafters Workshop 'Gears' template. In the opposite corners I used the same template with stencil paste, brushed over with mica powder for a metallic look. I added some brown velvet ribbon and a lovely little lock brad to finish off.

I hope you're enjoying the new stamps as much as I am. 
Thanks for visiting today

  3. The stencil paste is very effective with the mica - certainly looks very metallic to me & I love the way it contrasts with the very softness of the velvet ribbon. Think that gears template might have to jump into a shopping basket sometime soon.......

  4. This is a very sophisticated card, suitable for a man! The way you stenciled the gears with the mica is amazing, and that's a great technique! Awesome job on this one, Claire!
