Over on the Make My Monday challenge blog the theme is still steampunk and this week they are asking for some metal to be included in the design. My background was made by colouring a piece of Tim Holtz kraft resist paper with Adirondack wild plum ink and edging with a gold Krylon pen. I put some mirri card through a cuttlebug embossing folder and coloured with alcohol inks in wild plum, butterscotch and stream, eventually only using a narrow strip. I then put some cream card through the same embossing folder which I had inked with Adirondack inks in the same colours so that the inks transferred to the card which was cut to size, spritzed with copper Glimmer Mist and sponged with black soot Distress ink to tone it down a little. The butterfly collage is a stamp by Crafty Individuals and I layered the butterfly and added a pen nib coloured with alcohol ink. I really enjoy this steampunk style but to be honest I'm not sure that the people who usually buy my cards will appreciate it so my long suffering family might just end up being the recipients of these cards.
