First Steampunk Cards and Birthday Gift
Hello peeps, we did have some sun this morning, but has now clouded over and I like it's gone a bit chilly too, but OH would dissagree :))
My daughters friends birthday card above and my first attempt at a steampunk card using the Kanban Jasper stamps and steampunk papers, Tim Holtz cog die and various bits and bobs, think I used Spectrum Noirs to colour in. I can colour but don't have an eye or natural talent for the colour matching and the light and shade, but I loved doing it.
Below is the goodie part of a box I decorated for a friends birthday, I didn't like the packaging from the shop, so bought all her favourite sweets, she soooo loves sour sweets and set about making my own box.
I painted the box pink and then did the crackle effect in cream and once dried finished with spray and shine to protect it. Used the Tim Holtz tatty flower die and vintage shabby paper stack, a Marriane flower die, Wendy V clearly for art, beads, pearls and pins, (opps, I took the pic before I put the pearls in the flowers).
I made a matching card, and tag, and was very pleased with the end results and so was the recipient, was worth all the time and effort, I could even be as bold to say that I love em!
