Steampunk Victoria gear frame

Meet Steampunk Victoria. She is a part of the new Sassy Design Studio Steampunk collection. Why not pop on over to the SSD blog and join in the Progressive Relay Challenge for full details.


This image included a gear frame but I cut the gears off and added my own. The picture is not doing the card any justice. I've got to work on my photography skills. The image and center gear are popped up with as well as the the first mat. I started out with Kraft cardstock. The card and layers were cut with the Close To My Heart Art Philosphy cartridge. As I've said before it is my new favorite cartridge. It has a little bit of everything on. The card edges were inked with Close To My Heart Ink. I colored the image w/Copics and I can tell that I need to re-ink. When I need to re-ink it is almost impossible to blend the color nicely. I tried to use colors that gave the traditional vintage feel. The gears were once again cut with the Donna Salazar Spellbinders die. The metal cog is from Tim Holtz. Of course I had to use bling.
