Welcome to my Very Merry Holiday Steampunk Blog hop!! I have collected a talented group of crafters and artists who all share a love for all things Steampunk! We are celebrating Winter Holidays Steampunk style! I can't wait to see what everyone has brought to the hop! So let's get started!!!
I chose to create a few holiday cards that could also be little pieces of art for the winter. I started with these beautiful FREE steampunk snowflake papers created by co-blog hopper Amanda for her online digi store AJs Digi Shoppe--available here.
I created the definition images below and printed them on top of the pink snowflake paper. I created an embossed strip with a Provocraft gears emboss folder and Stormy Sky Distressed Ink. I added Maya Mist Pearl to the Purple, ripped the edge and created a 3×4¼" base to build my metal gear and washer snowflake. I added bling to the focus snowflake and created two more smaller flakes for the card. The base and the mat as well as the definition were all edged in Stormy Sky. You can download the definitions to use in your own art by right clicking on the definition and saving it to the file folder of your choice on your computer.
I hope you enjoy my projects. Please hop over and check out the other participants projects and leave them some love. Several are offering giveaways as well! Have a wonderful holiday and a joyous New Year! I will be back in the new year with a whole new schedule of blog hops! See you soon!
