Steampunkery !

Here's a card I made on a Kraft card base.  I have used 6 x 6 papers as the background with some letters trimmed out from paper also.

I have used rubber stamps from Darkroom Door to stamp all images (cogs, man with top hat , hot air baloon, butterfly & words)  Cogs & words were stamped in black Archival ink directly onto the background.  The man, balloon, compass & butterfly were stamped in Sepia Versafine and black Archival ink on white card and trimmed out.  The butterfly was coloured with a pencil.  The mans hat was embellished with Glossy Accents for a shine !

A honeycomb die was used to cut the mask which was coloured with worn lipstick Distress Ink.  Most edges were coloured with distress inks applied with cut'n'dry foam.  Once assembled the card was finished off with three dark brown brads as shown.
