Metal Steampunk

Forever Night Challenges     Freaky Friday 42-Steampunk & Metal
 Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps     Speedy Fox and Friends 114-Metal

These two challenges went together hand in glove. Metal and Steampunk, with a touch of sinister in the background. The Edwardian Era was the time of Steampunk. Lots of new inventions and mad scientists running around experimenting. 
I used Brushed Silver card stock for a metal look which I embossed with a Couture Creations embossing folder. I hit the high spots of that piece and the torn edges of the stamped piece with copper Metallic paste, then added the metal dots to 3 corners and....
For the final metal top off I used one of the pieces from Industrial Chic that I picked up at Michael's.
If it's too hot to celebrate with fireworks and a picnic you might be able to spend some time in your studio and play at these two challenges.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥
