Dawn here, from the little mennonite blog, with a Steampunk Birthday card for you today. I made this for my Uncle who was a shop teacher before becoming a high school principal. I used 3 products from the Southern Ridge Trading Company: Mini Wood Gears (made of real wood!), Mini Anchors and the Multi Gear Stencil in the smallest size.
Using the Southern Ridge Trading Company's Multi Gear Stencil, mix embossing paste with brown and gold paint and apply to card front. Let dry. Using a distress ink sponge, sponge over Salty Ocean distress ink. Splatter with water, then pick up water with a paper towel so white paper shows underneath. Spatter gold Perfect Pearls on top. Adhere Southern Ridge Trading Company Mini Wood Gears with Glossy Accents.
Paint Southern Ridge Trading Company Mini Anchor gold and adhere with Glossy Accents.
Using Lawn Fawn's Quinn's ABCs and 123s stamp out sentiment with black Memento ink and colour with Pro-Markers (or any alcohol based markers) to show a colour gradient. Cut out and paste with Glossy Accents to card front.
