Steampunk skies (posted by Claire)

Good morning folks, Claire here with a steampunk themed card. I've used stamps from Steampunk Travel to create this card which would be great for someone perhaps leaving work or going on their travels.

I began with some ivory linen card and inked around the edges with some Black Soot Distress Ink. I took some dictionary pages and cut out some cloud shapes and again inked them with a little black ink before glueing them onto the linen card.

I stamped the images with versamark ink and embossed with Gold embossing powder and added some colour with a little more black ink. I cut the images out and layered them up with 3D foam pads. The words were stamped in black ink, cut out and again inked around the edges with black ink. to finish off  I layered the linen card over some glitter card and popped some gold faux pearls in the corners.

Thanks for visiting, hope you have a lovely crafty day
