Today I have a card share for you, and it features the ODBD Steampunk Gears Dies. This card is not my typical artwork, and making it was out of my comfort zone. However, I wanted to make it for a Splitcoaststampers.com Dare To Get Dirty Challenge. Unfortunately, I cannot share the details of the Dare To Get Dirty Challenge per Splitcoaststampers.com. If you are a Club Member, you already know the details. If you are not, you can join Splitcoaststampers as a Club Member so you can participate in the challenges.
To create the card, I die cut the gears using the ODBD Steampunk Gears Dies. I covered the gears with VersaMark® Watermark Ink and embossed them with Copper, Green, Black, Pewter, and Yellow embossing powder. Then I attach two or more gears together with adhesive.
I sponged several Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks (e.g., blues, greens, yellow, brown, orange, etc.) onto a piece of Neenah Solar White Card Stock. I stamped over the sponged on ink some text and designs. Then I began adding the gears to the panel. On three sets of gears, I added one or two layers of foam tape. In addition to the foam tape, I attached the gear sets to the card stock with black brads.
After adding the gears, I added a sentiment. I attached it with two gears and black brads.
I cut a piece of copper foil and added it to the back of the above panel.
To finish the card, I cut an A2 piece of black card stock and added the above to the card base.
Considering I was out of my comfort zone making this card, please share how you think I did. Thanking you in advance for your comments.
