Steampunkish by Zoe

Good morning Lovelies, welcome to my second and final post this month, I’m showcasing my samples that featured on Lesley’s Steampunk themed show for Hochanda last month.

My background on my first card is all Distress Oxides including the stamping, the Car and sentiment I used Black Onyx Versafine Inkpad.

My Grey/white board tag was first sprayed with chalk finish spray inks in a pale green and taupe colour, I then stamped using the Crackle background stamp and words from the “Key to my heart” set. I used hot foil on part of the tag to create some depth, then texture paste through a stencil, one dry I applied gold Gilding wax, the keys and Sentiment I used the same spray inks, heat embossed.

Ok so I might be a bit old fashioned here? But I was going by the song “ you got the key to the door, never been 21 before” anyhow, I simply stamped the keys with Versamark ink and heat embossed using Gold, Silver and Copper sparkle  EP, the 21 is dies cuts that I hot foiled.

Thank you for your time, have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx 


  1. Love your first and third cards, but that tag is beautifull. I especially like the foiling.

  2. These are fabulous Zoe! Love the designs and stamps.

  3. Two beautiful cards using the steampunk themed stamps and those fabulous keys, and then the keys again on the tag with lots of background interest, especially on the first two, but I also love the less busy background on the last one with just the different keys in several metallic colours, and the 21 which seems appropriate, though I suppose these days they get the key of the door a lot x

  4. What wonderful cards Zoe, the colours are brilliant and designs too, Kate x
