Steampunk – Just Add Ink

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Today I thought I would try a challenge…..and why not something different, very different.

What is Steampunk

Here’s a little Google/wikipedia blurb to explain the fundamentals of steampunk…..(copied from Just Add Ink)

Steampunk is a retro-futuristic subgenre of science fiction that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. … Such technologies may include fictional machines like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne.

The Just Add Ink Design Team have created some wonderful examples of Steampunk, check them out HERE . Why not give this challenge a go, it was so much fun…

Here’s my take on Steampunk..

Stampin' Up! Products including Brilliant Wings Dies, Garage Gears Dies, Geared Up Garage Stamps, Swirly Frames stamps, Fancy Phrases stamps.

I have used 3 different stamp sets and 2 sets of dies to create this card. It was so much fun thinking out side of the box of my usual style of work. Setting yourself a challenge to try something different can be a real release and give you a wonderful sense of achievement.

I usually try not to use product that has been deleted…but with this card I wanted to add some foil/ metal looking cardstock and did so with the Brushed Metallic Cardstock from the 2020Holiday Catalogue.

      Thanks loved giving it a go, so much fun

  2. Michele I love all the layered stamping you did to create that fabulous vintage feel background. Adding the gears on top really picks up on the small industrial stamped elements and I totally agree that adding some gleaming metallic gears was a must have – and it looks great! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Kim

    Oh wow Michele. I really love your steampunk card. You certainly threw yourself into the challenge. I really love the floral stamp on the brushed metal background – the perfect background for the cogs and butterfly. Thanks for joining in with us this week at Just Add Ink.
