If you're a regular reader of my posts, you know that I just love Tiddly Inks, and you also know that Tiddly Inks and Make It Crafty recently released a line of steampunk images. Well, I just couldn't wait to try them all out. You'll probably be seeing quite a few cards using these images in the next week or so, especially since Tiddly Inks is having a Samples Show Off challenge. Check out the details here.
Here is my first card made specifically for the Sample Show Off. I've used three of Tiddly Inks new images: Precious, a frame and a background paper from the Extra Goodies 3 Papers and Gear set. These images are just so easy to mix and match!
Here's a closeup of the merged images:
I named this card Simplify. I was really trying to keep it simple, so originally I just had the merged image, the embossed background and the gear die cut card. However, it was just TOO simple, you know? So I added the metal tag. Still not enough, so I added some flowers. Just needed a little bit more....and the bling was added. Still fairly simple...but not as boring. LOL The gear die cut is from Sizzix (the Tim Holtz Alterations line), the flowers and bling are from Michael's, the metal tag and the embossing folder are more items from the Tim Holtz line. Precious was colored with Copics, and the background was shaded with Distress Ink in Milled Lavender. The embossed paper was shaded with chalk ink in Wisteria from the Color Box.
Well, thanks for stopping by to take a look. Make sure to pop by later in the week to see more of these fabulous steampunk images. Hugs for now!
