CAS meets Steampunk!

Hi everyone, thanks for all the lovely comments you've left recently. A quick post from me today. Just thought I'd share a card I'd been asked to make. Sometimes keeping it simple is what's requested ....hence the title. I thought I'd take the opportunity to combine it with the current challenge over at SanDee & amelie's  blog which is 'Three's my lucky number' .


I hope it scrapes in as an entry...definitely a trio and watch, cogs and grungy background with gilding fit the steampunk bill......just hope it's not too CAS!!


The background is a brayered acrylic ink one from a recent post, with a little florentine treasure gold over the embossed areas. Thanks for stopping by.

  29. I know you did this awhile back but i just had to comment on how beautiful this is!! I have recently been introduced to Steampunk and am fascinated by the style of art. You ABSOLUTELY nailed it!! I would have never thought that Steampunk could be CAS but you executed it beautifully.. You should take this to House of Cards the theme is metallic.. I think this would be fantastic addition. I agree with Martha, I am insanely in love with this card!! Just....well.....WOW!
