Steampunk Love Card

 Greetings! It's Tuesday, which means that it's Kathi here to share a project with you! We're celebrating Valentine's Day on the blog this week although the holiday is a month away.

I decided that I wanted to go Steampunk style-wise and to use an unconventional color scheme.

Here's my card that I created with the Mixed Media Steampunk Heart and Feathers Clear Polymer Stamp Set by Studio Light,  the Steam Cogs Stencil #71 by AALL and Create, and the Grid of Hearts Stencil* by Alexandra Renke.

The heart from the Mixed Media Steampunk Heart and Feathers Clear Polymer Stamp Set was stamped onto white cardstock and colored using Copic markers, which were also used to color the background. 

The heart was also stamped onto repositionable label paper and fussy-cut. By coloring the background, I avoided having to fussy-cut around the top of the pen, which would have been a daunting task.

The fussy-cut heart mask was adhered over its counterpart. The Grid of Hearts Stencil* was placed over the image panel and Jersey Cream Prism Ink was brushed onto the top left and bottom right of the image panel using Black Blending Brushes.

The stencil was lifted and Jersey Cream Prism Ink was brushed over the the Steam Cogs Stencil #71 on the top right and bottom left of the image panel.

"Love" and "You & Me" were stenciled with the same ink to add sentiments in a subtle way. 

The image panel was trimmed, edged with Jersey Cream Prism Ink, matted with red cardstock, and adhered to a yellow 5" x 7" card.

If you'd like to know about this card, please hop over to my blog Kat's Tales of Stamping.

*The Grid of Hearts Stencil is no longer available, but the Falling Hearts Stencil by Alexandra Renke would make a great substitute. 

Thanks for visiting! See you next Tuesday!
