Steampunk Greetings

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.This week our challenge hostess for the month Vicky Gould finishes of the month with one last challenge.

Vicky has challenge us to a Mixed Media challenge ... 

Quoting Splitcoaststamers: A "medium" can be any of the following: 
Pencils - wax, oil, watercolour, graphite/charcoal. chalk/pastel
Pastels - Chalk, oil
Markers - watercolor, pigment, water-based acrylic
Pens - ink, glitter
Pigments - Gelatos, watercolor crayons, metallic rubons
Paints - watercolor, acrylic, oil, poster, tempera
Inks - dye, chalk, distress, reinkers, pigment, hybrid
Powders - mica, pigment, chalk
Sprays & airbrushing
Dimensionals - embossing paste, gesso, fabric, found items, papers (collage, piecing) & ephemera, foils
Heated elements - encaustic wax, embossing 

As you can see I have created another Cascading Tag Card using the chair die from the Adirondack Pop Up  Card and one of the tags from the Tag Pivot Card. You can find Karen Burniston's video tutorial here on how to create this style of card.

To decorate my card I used Poppy the Owl along with the Steampunk Charm die set and Steampunk Clear Stamp set.

I used the Gears Stage It Stencil  and Viva Walnut Brown Metallic 3D Stamp Paint to add gears to the designer paper I used which is one of the papers from the Through the Lens Cardstock. I also  sponged gears onto each of the Owl's hats.

These are the various mixed media materials I used to create my card : Stencil; Embossing Paste; Shimmer Sheetz; Distress Ink; Fibers; Glitter; Glitter Dot Peel Off Stickers; Glitter Border Peel Off Stickers; Designer Paper; Die Cuts.

For the front of my card I used the Clock and Gears die set along with the wings from the Steampunk Charms die set which were cut from Shimmer Sheetz. The clock face was die cut with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front and then covered with Copper Silk Microfine Glitter.
