Steampuck Card for Challenge

Welcome back and hope you are having a wonderful start for the new year.  I have a few male birthday cards to make right now and a nice change from making Christmas cards for the past few months. If you are looking for vintage parts for your vintage steam puck projects, 

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.  I used 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 applied the Prima Marketing Metallique Aged Brass, Rich Copper, Ginger Sparks and Red Amber with some Ranger Dauber Black Soot.  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 of the same Prima Marketing Metallique waxes. I love using the Prima Marketing waxes since it provides a nice metallic sheen on this paper along with the Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Ginger Sparks.   I just use my fingers to smear these waxes and Sparks on the paper and gears.   I first applied the black gesso in thPrima Marketing Finnabair Art Basic Mixed Media Essentials Gesso Sets on the gears and screws and let dry before applying the waxes and Sparks.

I added the brown baker twine and then used a hot glue gun for the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Metal Word Bands.  I smeared some Prima Marketing waxes on the metal word bands.  

I cut out some patterned brown paper and distress the one edge with my fingers and used a pencil to draw the stitches.  I applied the Ranger Antique Linen to the edges for a distress look.  

I sponged on the Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink to the stamped sentiment and number 41st.
