But hey down to business. This week at TTPH it's steampunk week. Always a challenge but really interesting to see every body's interpretation of it. To make our cards, we have the fab sponsor this week of Rick St Denis. An absolutely awesome designer, who's images are a real pleasure to work with. And here's mine.
Done on a basic cream 8x8 card, I started by randomly stamping text stamp and a clock stamp around the edge of the card, overlaying the blue matt paper, with added paper curls for pizazz and tore a strip of the burgundy paper to tie it all together. I coloured the image in sepia tones using Promarkers and added a couple of gilded wooden keys, some lace and made flowers by crumpling up paper and lightly inking over using an ink duster.
Join us at TTPH and have a go.
