A Steampunk Card



Well I won’t have to water the garden for a couple of days. Hurricane Arthur has dumped a ton of water over the last two days, especially today. We may get some more rain over night but the next few days should be clear. We decided to get groceries and run some errands today in between the storms, which didn’t always work out! When we went into Wal-Mart to get our bread (we like the brand they carry better than the grocery store where we get about 90% of our groceries) it was raining pretty hard. When we came out, the sun was shining and it was hot and humid. We just got in the house from getting the rest of the groceries and it started raining hard again. The crazy weather continues!

Last Saturday was my oldest grandson’s birthday but I didn’t post on the weekend so I’m posting his card now.
I’m making all family members a Steampunk card this year. This was a free digi stamp and coloured with Prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. After die cutting it with a Spellbinder square die, I left it in the die and sponged Distress Ink Antique Linen around the edges. This leaves the nice white border. I just happened to have the same colour of burnt red paper as the balloon I coloured in the stash. This does not always happen but I’m happy when it does. The background paper is from a Tim Holtz Steampunk paper pack I picked up on sale at Michaels. The sentiment is a sticker from Hot Off the Press called Dazzles. And yes, I got a thank you email from him. Nice kid he is…especially for a 15 year old.

That’s all for a rainy Tuesday!

Cheers
Violet
