Women Steampuck

 Hope you are having a good harvest whether it is in your garden or farm or just crafting!  
Sizzix 3D Tim Holtz Mechanic Embossing Folder and Stamperia Voyages Fantastique paper

I have two cards made with these products that I would like to share with you this crafty weekend.

I had a sheet in my piling stash of old paper of gold mirror foil and embossed it with the Sizzix 3D Tim Holtz Mechanic Embossing Folder. (Bottom left corner has been embossed without any wax or gesso added yet)  As shown on the bottom right corner, use a brush to apply the Prima Marketing Finnabair Black Gesso over the entire sheet.  If you use a brush and tap it on, you will get more of a rustic appearance rather than brushing it smoothly.   I used my hot embossing gun to dry the black gesso.  I used the Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Sparks Dragon Eyes along with the Prima Marketing Metallique Aged Brass, Rich Copper and Red Amber.  Occasionally, I used a dry wipe to spread or remove any excess colors.

I cut out the edges of the embossed section before gluing and adding the gears that were also covered with black gesso and various colors if these Prima Marketing Metallique waxes.  I used a hot glue gun to adhere the gears to the card and used the Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Glue for the rest of the card especially the cut out tag from the Stamperia Voyages Fantastique paper pad.

For the female card,  I added a chipboard with these Prima Marketing Metallique waxes to frame the tag.  I found an ole metal flower and wings from a necklace and applied white gesso on the flower and let dry before applying the Prima Marketing Metallique waxes.   I cut out another frame from the paper pad behind the embossed paper.  

For the male card, I found a small flash light bulb in my drawer and added it to the card.  I added the Prima Marketing Melange Vintage Art Pebble to this card with a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Muse Token and Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Finnabair Mechanical set on the corner.   

I sponged on the Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink to the tags and chipboard of Tim Holtz Quotes Chipboards to blend theses into the embossed card.  

I had so much fun making these cards and hope you will too.  So have fun crafting this weekend with these products.   My cards and projects are always posted on Saturday.  Keep watching and thank you so much for those wonderful comments as well as suggestions.

Nancy, this s a really fabulously designed steampunk card with a whole lot of vintage touches! I love the image of the woman in the frame and your added embellishments that tie in so perfectly with the gears 3D background. Thanks for joining us at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog for our Bits and Bobs challenge (and for clearly showing what those bits and bobs are). Hugs!
