Today, I have a card that's a little different for me, but when I saw the design paper, I knew just what stamp I had to use with it, Deep Red Stamps Flying Man. I thought the paper kind of looked like bits and pieces of gears so it just screamed Steam Punk me so as you know when I have these episodes where stamps or supplies talk to me, I listened.
I stamped the Flying Man onto some design paper. I thought that he would be too stark on white with the deep turquoise of the other paper. I knew that I didn't want to color this image I wanted it to have a more vintage print look so I just stamped it in black. I mated the image on some nice deep red to contrast with the turquoise paper and the black gears.
Since I decided to do a steampunk card I wanted to add some gears and so I used some wonderful Spellbinder dies to create them in a variety of sizes. All the gears are touched with some gold Stickles to give them a bit of a metallic feel. I also added some gold Stickles to the propeller blades of the flying machine for the Flying Man.
The card is finished off with a few brass charms for to continue the steampunk theme.
