Steampunk Valentine

Hello Everybody!

I am so excited to show you the card I made using the Queen and Company Heart Throb kit with a Steampunk Flair!

First here is my card:

Here is another picture of it.

Here are the products that I used to create it:

Plus I used Q and C's heart die and a heart foam.

For the background I used the foil cardstock.  But it was too shiny-so I inked it up with black distress paint.

I also inked up the heart foam for the shaker part.  I used the black distress paint for that as well.

I realized I had to do the inside too! :)  

For the heart shaker I used the foil cardstock.  I embossed the inside with gears and used the preserves and black distress inks.  I used the black distress ink for the heart outline as well.

Then I filled it with all of those wonderful things-microbeads and diamonds and a few sequins.  But there are 3 silver little gears in there also.  They came from this earring that I bought at a Steampunk show back in January.

I'm saving the other 2 gears. :)

Here is another picture of the heart.  

For the sentiment I used black and white cardstock.  I cut it out on the Silhouette and then made the background from there also.  I used the Ken Olivers liquid metals silver to make the sentiment sparkly.

Thank you for stopping by today!

I would like to link this up to the following:

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends-may love fill your heart! :)

Your inked up foil paper reminds me of an old machine, so goal achieved! Awesome card. Thanks for using our sketch as inspiration for your card!
