Well, Lydia...you certainly presented a challenge for this girl today. I really don't have a particular style...love CAS, love lots of layers, love vintage but don't really do or have a grasp of steampunk. So that was my challenge today.
Sure hope the steampunk police aren't around today 'cause I'm not really sure on this LOL...but here it is anyway.
I used a piece of Tim Holtz designer paper and dry embossed it with one of his embossing folders. Next the raised edges are sanded with a sanding block. Then three various images (gee whiz are these really steampunk?) were stamped on the background. Next I used a blender pen and marker and added some color to the wings.
Think this qualifies for the CAS challenge today too - ivory, chocolate and red.
Thanks for checking out my card...and my apologies to those of you who love and do the steampunk style so well!

I don't know what steampunk is either but I do know I like the composition of this card and the images. To me, it has a very arty quality and I love the little details like the embossing and sanding. Kudos to you for stepping outside your box and trying something new (besides, you're good at it)!
