Gold and Turquoise Steampunk Card

Hello everyone,

second post of the day is for the card I just put together:


I used a piece of white cardstock and painted it with turquoise paint, then applied some texture paste through a harlequin stencil and then dabbed darker turquoise paint and metallic gold paint.


I used a Chipboard steampunk cameo piece and different die cuts from Cheery Lynn and Memory Box Clock Gear dies; painted them all with metallic gold paint and embellished some with gold and blue crystals.


One more look at the finished card...

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

A Sprinkle of Imagination Monthly Challenge

Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge #195 Anything Goes

Sandee & amelie's Steampunk Challenges Summer Super Special Challenge Tic Tac Toe (I chose Stencil, Metal Paint and Three of the Samra-3 blue crystals)

I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...
