Creative Expressions 2nd DT Card

Afternoon and here is my 2nd post of the day. This time it's for my DT card for Creative Expressions. As you know I picked out the Sam Poole - Steampunk Christmas for my monthly pick so I've put a different slant on the stamps this week.
I was inspired to make this card after seeing a set in Craft Stamper by Sarah Engels-Greer. I loved her 3 cards that she showcased last month.


First I took a 12x12 piece of cardstock by Tim Holtz from the Kraft Resist pad and cut it to make a 6x6 card. I then brushed over a little gesso randomly. Next using the tree stamp from the Sam Poole Steampunk Christmas stamp set I stamped it out using walnut stain distress ink and then I shadow stamped it with another burgundy ink. I then stamped a few cogs out in the same walnut distress ink. A piece of tape washi was put along the bottom. I took a kraft tag and stamped out some cogs with distress ink and then let it dry. I then stamped out some more cogs and embossed them with clear powder. I then ripped it in half. I did the same with the sentiment and the "25" but using a burgundy ink and edging with the walnut. Next I arranged the pieces onto the card and run stitching over them randomly. I then inked and embossed some cogs onto Kraft card and cut them out and arranged them on the page. Finally I added the twine.

Come back next week to see what I create using Steampunk Christmas again.
