The Male Room starts a new challenge today and its theme is STEAMPUNK.
Well I can't tell you how much this is so outside of my comfort zone, but a little research on pinterest and I settled down with trepidation to try to make a card. And you know what - I really enjoyed it!
So starting with a watercoloured smooshed background was no big step for me, but adding layers of stamping, washi, die cuts and metal embellishments was fun - no holding back or hints of my usual CAS style there then!
Stamps: Visible Image, Music Speaks; Uniko, Decorative Doilies
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress, black soot, mowed lawn, salty ocean, peacock feathers, mustard seed
Stencils: TCW, mini stitched art, mini chicken wire reversed, mini grow page
Die: Spellbinders, sprightly sprockets
Embellishments: washi & metal elements from my stash
Go have some fun yourself and give those cogs and wheels and steampunk colours a whirl. So looking forward to seeing how you embrace this theme. The rest of tMR DT have fabulous inspiration for you - here.
Mega thrilled to have had you drop by my blog today, thanks so much. And keep crafting!
