Adventure Awaits

Happy Monday!!!  Michele here today to share a quick steampunk card with you.  But first let me show you how a did my background layer.

I started out with some watercolor paper, stamped the nesting gears  (Item 18077 Plate 1373) in archival ink, sprinkled high gloss embossing powder on top and heated it up.

Next I sprinkled some Brusho in yellow ochre all around.

Then I spritzed with water and let dry.  I didn't do any blotting becasue I didn't want to smear the color around.

I also stamped a steampunk heart  (Item 16020 Plate 1273 Valentine) and steampunk wings (Item 18658 Plate 1406) on watercolor paper, which I fussy cut, colored and inked.  The gears are Um Wow Studio gear mash covered in WOW embossing powder.  I bit of wire ties it together.  The sentiment is adventure awaits (Item 19009 Plate 893). Oh and the card base is Authentique, I have been saving this piece for somthing special.  :)

Thanks for sharing a bit of your day with us and don't forget about this months inspiration challenge!!

I can't wait to see what you create!!
