I thought I’d share a project that was recently featured in the Baroque Guild newsletter. This is a large 8×8 inch card which features a polymer clay tree made with a stamp from Steampunk Christmas. I also used all sorts of metal bits and pieces or faked a metal look with embossing powder.
I used Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany Distress Stains to colour Kraft Glassine paper which had been resist embossed with clear embossing powder first, using the cog stamps from Steampunk Christmas. The pointelle lace and velvet ric rac are part of the eclectic Victorian mix that Steampunk is all about.
The robin backing paper is part of the Spirit of Christmas papers that I am in the process of getting onto the website. I may be able to fit that in this weekend between washing machine shopping and visiting my family. It’s my Dad’s birthday this weekend so we’re off to Cumbria to see him and the family – one of our personal goals this year is to spend more quality time with my family as they have been a bit neglected with Adrian’s parents taking up so much of our spare time.
Now I do appreciate that this isn’t exactly a batch card for Christmas, but I hope some of the ideas in it give you some inspiration.
Have a great weekend!
