Steampunk/Mechanical at TioT



Hello and thanks for calling in,  today sees the start of a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this fortnight the theme is  Steampunk /Mechanical.   As usual it's up to you what you make as long as it follows the theme.

I've made a card with an industrial look using card covered with metal foil tape embossed with a Spelbinders EF for the base and then black card embossed with a Tim Holtz cogs folder,  I used Treasure Gold in Aquamarine on some of the raised parts. The gears die cut was covered with paint and a copper embossing powder.  My three gents are an old Tim Holtz stamp again layered on some embossed  metal card.

The rest of the DT have some wonderful inspirations for you, so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find the challenge details and some news!

This is a scheduled post as we are on holiday in Italy,  hopefully enjoying some lovely sunshine and drinking lots of local wine, not too sure how good the internet will be, so if I don't catch up with you soon, see you next week.

Oh, lucky you to be in Italy! I hope we are going to see photos! Your masculine card is wonderful! I love that old Tim stamp, and you have inspired me to dust it off! Gorgeous layers of metal! I love that bottom most embossing! Would love to know the name of the folder if you get a chance. Love this card! Hugs!
