Steam & Feathers - a Punk Cardby Lis Whiting
I recently got Frantic Stampers Feathers precision die set. Feathers are all the rage right now and I've been thinking of something to do with them. I love top hats and steampunk style so....I decided on this theme for a card!
I wanted my feathers to really have some pizazz so I used two sets of Encrusted Jewels by Stampendous. They give you a little kit with embossing powder and other stuff to create some pretty cool effects. I used Teal and Purple sets.
Steampunk is all abut gears so I had to include this in my card too! I embossed an ivory piece of cardstock and added an edging of copper and then Rusty hinge and Tea Dye over top of it. I added some gears of course, even a little gear at the base of my feathers...so cute!
and then...my focal...a top hat with feathers! I mounted my hat with mounting tape so it could really stand out.
I love the way the top hat and feathers turned out. I cut a small slit in my hat so that I could thread the stem of each feather into it and attach from behind the hat. I added some gold embossing powder touches like a brim and some "wear".
I hope you enjoyed my card today! Thanks for stopping by!
