Steam punk Christmas

Mama Bear Gayle over at The Teddy Bo Towers asked me to try a Christmas card with Steam Punk designed graphics from her the Fairy Doodler.  I've never done any Steam Punk design but my feel for it is a Victorian aged hard core Robotic industrialized design that sings of steel, brings a old fashioned color combination and mix it up with a sexy burlesque woman feel.  Then I added a flower that was distressed to give it a Holiday feel with the metal poinsettia like corner leaf and the Holiday Sentiment.    Whew!  I think the satin sash and flourish flowers add a Spritz of New Years too!  This was fun to try, but after seeing some real experts in Steam Punk I know I have a lot to learn.  This isn't the only technique  I need practice with so "keep moving forward"  as they say.  I hope you enjoy it and at least it inspires you to try one!


INGREDIENTS:
Bazzill stock
Steam Punk Paper is Winter Wonderland by Gayle
Sentiment is Raindrop Echo


 MEDIUMS:
Copic Markers
Ranger Distress Ink


EMBELLISHMENTS:
Jolee's Boutique flower distressed and altered
Stickles
glitter
eyelets from stash

  4. This is incredible, Tammy! I wasn't really sure what steam punk was, but I think that definition you provided makes it clear as mud for me! lol! Seriously, this card is phenomenal, and certainly wraps up the definition of steam punk in a nice little package!
