Steampunk Ryan Paper Frame!

The attraction of Steampunk is having so many texture and layers to play with and create.  As someone who can't resist texture and layers, I was delighted recently to revisit Mad for Markers Samantha's Steampunk Ryan and this time create a card with a paper frame that would make a beautiful gift.

I had to get creative with supplies for this project as I didn't have much on hand in the studio.  I didn't have a lot of Steampunk papers ..actually I didn't have any come to think of it.  I was resourceful and ventured to  I bought some yummy digital paper from Victoria Designs. For the base of the card I just used Kraft colored cardstock from Michael's.  I inked the sides of all the papers using Walnut distress ink. I was really happy that I was finally able to use my Vintage epherma that I bought from The Embellished Connection.  I could see the layers building in my mind. :)

 The sentiment was from a Simon Says Stamp September card kit.  I thought it was fitting. :) The green tag was a standard shipping tag that I sprayed with Dylusions spray and then inked with various Distress inks.  I also stamped layers onto the tag to give it more texture and a grunge feel.  One of my favorite moments creating this project was using the metallic Sharpies to create the gears.   They were perfect for the job! Once gears were dried I added them onto the piece with dimensionals to make the gears pop out and add depth.
