Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with last weeks Anniversary Card Challenge. To my regular players, sorry for my jumping the gun on the challenge theme, it's was one of those crazy weeks! Just in time for Father's Day, this weeks challenge is Masculine Cards.
To create the background of my card, I used the Riveted Patchwork Technique from the Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities Book #2. I borrowed some HVAC Tape from DH as I didn't have any Essentials Foil in my stash. To create the seams I used a Scor-Bug, Scor-Pal and a piercing tool. Not having the Alcohol Inks suggested in the book, I used Raisin. Note to self, put cap back on Alcohol Ink when you are done using it!
I used images from the Artistic Outpost Steampunk and Secretary Pool plates, which happens to also fit this months Artistic Outpost Referral Theme. The main images are stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, then distressed with Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Ink. I added a bit of the Raisin AI to the train station. To fill in some open space I added the script from the Secretary Pool plate over the Train Station and to the conductor. I also stamped the eye image over the word Steampunk.
