I’ve been meaning to make something steampunky for a long time, but somehow never actually have (until now). So this is my first steampunk creation (many firsts for me this year)! I am quite pleased with it and hope you’ll like it too.
This steampunk postcard features a lot of stamping and embossing, some patterned paper, butterflies, and a close-up of a pretty woman’s face.
For the background, I used Steampunk Spells by Graphic 45 and various text stamps (e.g. “An Eerie Tale” by G45). The butterflies are pieces of Tim Holtz ephemera. The main focus is on the lady from the “Classics #5” set by Tim Holtz. I was ecstatic when I bought this stamp last year (I still am), but this is only the second time I’ve used it since then, as I was “saving” it (silly me!).
The background was built upon a recycled piece of corrugated cardboard – it’s always nice when you get to reuse or repurpose random materials that are lying around your home.
