GRUNGY STEAMPUNK

This week I am showcasing the Balloon stamp  from Katzelkraft.
This week I have opted for a grungy steampunk card, creating a background from embossed metal which I have coloured with Alcohol Inks and then rubbed over with wire wool to give a fabulous industrial feel.
I have added dimension to my image adding four layers, stamping the image with Potting Soil Archival Ink and adding a touch of shading with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Large and small cog has been cut from white card and coloured with Walnut Stain Distress Paint with highlights of Olive Bronze Treasure Gold Wax added. I have also added a mini cog embellishment to the top along with the letter 'S' for STEAMPUNK.
STEAMPUNK has been stamped with Archival Ink and shaded with Distress Inks and added to the bottom of my card.
Two mini tags have been cut from white card, coloured with Distress Ink attached together with a brad and two Chitchat stickers added.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
