Hello Steampunk Friend at Ching-Chou Kuik

I'm back again with some more inspiration for the Ching-Chou Kuik Challenge Blog.  Have you joined in with our Thank You/Sympathy challenge yet?  If not, you can enter here.

This week the team were challenged to use some flowers. I always use paper or die-cut flowers, so this time I wanted to be different and use metal flowers... and with metal comes a Steampunk theme! 
I have used 'Steampunk Dragonfly' for a square layered card.  I don't like a lot of froufrou or excessive embellishments on a card, but using the layering method you can add a lot of elements without going over the top!

Products used:
  • Papermania card
  • Papermania 'Chronology' papers
  • Gear dies
  • Hill & cloud dies
  • Sizzix Tim Holtz Friend Script word dies
  • Tim Holtz Idea-ology Foliage
  • Cosmic Shimmer extra thick embossing crystals
  • Distress Inks - Walnut Stain, Stormy Sky & Forest Moss
  • ProMarkers - Burnt Sienna, Caramel, Dusky Pink, Satin, Henna, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Walnut, Tan, Raw Sienna, Gold, Sunflower, Umber & Powder Blue

I used the extra thick embossing crystals to give these gears a plastic shine

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
  1. Card Mania - #106 AG
