Romance Steampunks Re Release
Today at Simply Steampunk Challenges we're celebrating the re release of the fabulous Steampunk Romance Digis and I have the pleasure of showcasing Romance Jacob. I have to say these guys make my heart go pitty pat, they're sooo handsome and perfect for those hard to make male cards. I've used the sentiment "All the Best" here so this card could be used for many different occasions, ie. birthday, graduation, new job, retirement. Great to have one of those in your stash. The main card is cut from the DCWV Tattered Time stack and the layers all cut (or fussy cut) from one piece of card stock from the Tradewinds stack. I've matted in gold foil and a metal "game spinner" to add further shine.
Here's a closeup of that handsome devil. He's colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped. I dare say his luscious locks remind me of an old beau. Yummy!
I could have easily adhered all the layers flat, but I just can't resist the look of a little dimension. Really adds interest, don'cha think? Be sure to visit Simply Steampunk to see the rest of the team's fab examples. You'll be amazed to see how versatile the Steampunk Romance digis can be. And please don't forget our current Party Invitation Challenge which runs through December 5th. Why not pop in over the Turkey Day holiday and give it a go? Hope to see you there.
I'm so happy you came to visit and share in my crafting adventures. I hope in doing so you are inspired. I would love to hear your comments and I'm happy to share my designs for your personal use, but please do not submit them for contests or publication or copy them for any commercial venture.
I've always loved crafting, even as a little girl. My inspiration was my Daddy who was a wonderful artist and made beautiful 3-D Valentines for my teachers in grade school. Although I love all kinds of crafts I haven't had a real focus since abandoning counted cross stitch back in the 80's. Until I got my Cricut in 2008, that is. I've since expanded my horizons and found a new love in coloring both rubber and digi stamps with my Copics. Now I'm a blissfully retired card maker and papercrafter married 38 years to a wonderful guy with two furbabies, Goliath and Jezebel. Everyday I look forward to dreaming up designs and playing in my craft room. I invite you to share in my adventures.
