Steampunk 2

Hello Everyone,

Onto Steampunk number 2...I looked on google after seeing steampunk or hearing about it, and was even more confused, but found this paragraph which may help a bit....

" Steampunk is the -genre of science fiction..alternate history..victorian meets science"

" What the past would look like it the future had happened sooner"

Best I can do......to explain.



More fabulous images from Carmen  a left and right boot...



Some more cogs....which dont really take that much time to cut out...I just cut them into a circle...close to the teeth part, then just nipped on an angle quite quickly...oh! and my finger tip..new scissors..


There you go, full view.

Colored again with pencils, a slow process, with the worst lighting of all time...pot lights..hmpf.
Gold gel pen for a bit of shine, a lot of inked edges, and the cogs, to give a more rusty look,  and then some pearl brads just to lighten up a bit.

So there is my Steampunk 2, really fun to do..you can go as messy as you want..I just dont do mess.
I do try, but even inking the edges 'distresses' me more than the paper..lol..

Catch you all tomorrow....

Luv CHRISSYxx

Chrissy this is awesome once again. I still have these two digi's on my computer from when you talked about them before, but I have always been somewhat intimidated to do anything with them. If it's ok with you some time in the future I would love to use your card as an example to make one. I also love, love your discription as to what steampunk is. In blog land and YouTube I see it a lot, but never really knew what it was for sure. lol.. Great card my friend. Hugs to you and Harry. Lisa

Wow Chrissy, Loving your steampunk cards, you should make more, as you really have it sussed. I love your cogs, they look great and those three brads in each corner look good as they mirror the three boot buckles - it's really effective. Hugs, Teresa x
