September sees Cath setting a whole month long of STeAmpuNK challenges for Make My Monday - I think it's going to be an interesting month. I am actually away on holiday for a few weeks and have scheduled my blog posts to appear (fingers crossed) - so I apologise in advance if I do not manage to visit your lovely blogs and leave comments. In this debut week of Steampunk Cath would like us to make an:-
ATC with a steampunk theme
Now I do not have an abundance of steampunk stamps so have endeavoured to make do with what stash I have and interpret it as best I can - this will become clear as September progresses lol. That's what challenges are all about isn't - trying to push your own boundaries and "challenging" yourself.......
I made a trio of ATCs using the Cuttlebug cogs embossing folder and pearlised card. I then coloured these with three different distress inks and added various images from the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante range of papers. Metal elements were added and some stamped images.
The edges of my ATCs were then embossed with a different metal element for each (as Steampunk evokes the metal); Silver, Gold and Copper.
I hope you like my little pieces of art and pop along to the Make My Monday blog to check out my fellow design team's artist trading cards, they're fab! Suzanne ~x~
