My second (and third) projects for Scrapmatts blog are those Steampunk card and tag.
Yes, I love Steampunk. Not as a way of life, but sure as a crafter.
So when I see pretty masculine cardstock and add gorgeous Scrapmatts chipboard and stencils, I get this fancy masculine friendship card first.
I used the Stemapunk Arch window frame and a big gear piece - both were heat embossed with copper powder. The gear was cut into two parts and added from both sides of the card.
I used Gears stencil with distress ink to cover the inside of the window.
The lamp was added in the middle to give the light of gold to this freindship card.
And yes, to make it a real Steampunk I added a few real metal pieces that fit the chipboards in the most perfect way.
My last project for Scrapmatts is this Steampunk tag.
Same style as the card, but the colors are totally different.
The card was a kind of a warm one.
This tag is a cold grey and blue project.
Some of the chipboards here were heat embossed with blue powder and the background one was left bare.
I added this lovely " naked" Happy Birthday chipboard and again, a few metal pieces were must to add things to make it a real Steampunk style.
I think that I am in love with those Scrapmatts Steampunk chipboards!
They make my masculine crafting possible!
