I hope everyone is keeping well? Today the Dt is back with Louise who has created this beautiful Steampunk style card using my 'The Gent' stamp. I love all the patina effect Louise has created on the cogs. Here is what Louise hase done xx.
Hi All its time for Cogs " Colours must fit together as pieces in a puzzle or cogs in a wheel" Han Hofmann Quote i rather like.
So here is what i did to make this card
Taking a square of card i painted it in a shade of ochre and then embossed it a few times with a Xcut Cut and emboss folder called Steampunk Cogs xcu 503812
To highlight the cogs i used Ocean Teal Gilding Polish and buffed it up and then added some black distress crayon to tone it down in places
The Gent was coloured in wax pencils and cut out adding an extra flower for depth
Bronze paint was flicked over the background for more interest
The embossed card was mounted onto silver and black card hey presto completed thanks for looking.
