So my new embossing folders eventually turned up and my steampumk play session recommenced.
I opted for the Tim Holtz gears embossing folder, to compliment the die cut gears. I've attached a couple of the die cut gears with brads, as well as the hands on the clock so that they have movement in them.
I decided to colour Scarlet West with my pro markers to a green theme in keeping with St Patricks day, it also happens to be my mum's favourite colour too, so ideal for her Mothers Day card.
I found some lace amongst some old stuff and thought it would add a lovely frill to Scarlet's Skirt.
I decoupaged the image of Scarlet and added the lace. I'm quite pleased for how it turned out.
I thought the lace was lovely, so made a scrunched up border with it, and also added it to my Kraft heart embellishment.
My mum loves the raffle ticket embellishments at the mo, So I made her one with 'Happy Mother's Day & With Love' sentiments on.
I then grunged everything possible with Tim Holtz distress ink.
