Good morning!! I’ve had a few days off work, and am trying to catch up with my blogging – of course, I’m trying to catch up with everything else, so it’s a lot slower going than it should be!! The card I have here features the image Steampunk Dragonfly by Ching-Chou Kuik. It’s been some time since I’ve done anything steampunk, because, frankly, it scares me!! Lol. I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils, adding some metallic accents on the gears and bolts of her outfit, and drawing in the crackly background. After die/fussy cutting the image out, I matted it on a piece that I’d cut with some edging scissors to look like a big cog. The background uses a technique that I learned in grade 2 (I think…..it was a long time ago, as I’m turning 50 in a few weeks!) We made pencil holders for our Dads for Fathers Day, using masking tape to cover the item…then it was a can, now its a piece of cereal box….then inking it to give it a faux leather look. I’m allowed to use heat guns now, so I sprinkled some embossing powders on this to give it even more texture. I added the chain pieces, some metal roses, and the gears to finish this off. Here is a picture of the original Father’s Day project!
