Card Me Thursday - Steampunked

Hmmm... still not sure I like this card, maybe because I'm not really sure what I was trying to achieve.  I'm slowly warming to the steampunk look but think I missed the mark here, the blue background is just not quite right.

Using a white card base, I inked it all over with distress stain.  For the card front I inked an embossing folder first then added the white card which was run through my Big Shot.  Then I just willy nilly added bits and pieces.   This card is very heavy and keeps falling over so I don't think I will be posting it to anyone...lol.  What do you think LOVE IT or NOT SO MUCH?

Have a great day!


  1. I love all the cool vintage elements you've layered on your card! The Design Team are really pleased that you joined us for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week - Thank you!

  2. I like it! I believe your composition pulled all your items together wonderfully. Blessings!
