My mum is a fan of steampunk. So I've been playing around with steampunk stuff, with the view to making her a mother's day steampunk card. My Mum is very difficult to make cards for because she is a crafter too. I always try and make her a card using new stash, so that I know it's something new to her too. I didn't really own anything that comes under steampunk. So I was delighted when I saw the 'Scarlett West' digi stamp over at www.kennykdownloads.com. I love the images on this site, along with www.pollycraft.co.uk these are the 2 sites that have just introduced me into the wonderful world of digi stamping. Scarlet West was downloaded & colouring commenced. This has now revived my old stash of Pro markers. I find it very therapeutic & I'm starting to learn how to actually use my pro markers. I was quite pleased with the finished coloured version, but then I didn't have anything else for it to go with. So I ordered the Tim Holtz steampunk embossing folders, sadly delivery has been rather sloooow. So I've been playing while I've been waiting. I made a backing sheet with some cogs on, which I was quite pleased with. I've then been playing with my other favourite things flowers and scrolls.
Here's my results of my play session! It's not going to be my final mother's day card, as I still want to have a play around with the embossing folders, so instead I shall use this for a birthday card.
