I've been pondering over the theme of Steam Punk again for the Make My Monday Challege. I'm not sure why my brain goes blank at the thought, but it does!!!! Anyway, this week it was Monotone aswell, so off I went surfing the net for some downloadables, and after picking through some weird pictures I found some images that I could play with.
After getting covered in black ink and embossing powder, this is what I came up with.
So I started with a white square card and sponged the edges with black ink. Then I tore a square out of the engineering instructions that I'd printed from the net and sponged the egdes again. On another peice of card I printed some cogs, a bird, a hot air balloon, and a man with a tank on his back???, and some cogs. All of these images were sponged, and the cogs were covered in Versamark and heat embossed to make them look more metalic, take a closer look at them
The balloon was raised on 3D pads, and the words 'inspire' and 'wonder' were heat embossed. The word 'discover' was also treated the same way, but it was cut out and placed over the background and the man. A metal washer was coloured black and stuck in the birds beak, and the finishing touch was a cut out cog placed in the bottom left corner and in the middle of the card front.
