Steampunk Roses...




Well...hi everyone! Pam here... I had fun grunging and distressing up the new Steampunk Pipes die!  Then it was what to put with it!  I have a friend that likes Steampunk, so I decided to distress up the new English Rose Bouquet, Gearworks Border, Uppercase Alphabet Soup letters and add them to the frame I made with the die cut pipes.




I die cut everything from white card-stock, inked completely with Rusty Hinge and then Black Soot Distress inks.  The Rose Bouquet I die cut from white twice.  Inked the roses on one with Rusty Hinge and Black Soot and the other with Peeled Paint and Black Soot.

I pounced a Versamark pad on the pieces to hold the chunky embossing powder while it melted.

On the inside, I stamped a coordinating sentiment from the poppystamps Hope and Thanks clear stamp set. HOPING (on the front)... you have a terrific birthday (on the inside).

Very fun!  I think it'd make a cool man card too, without the Rose Bouquet... maybe just embossing the new clear stamps in the frame.

 Thanks for stopping by today!


Pam this is absolutely stunning - love the pipes as a frame - genius!!

Really cute idea to make frame out of pipes. Came out great.

That is so cool, love the colors you used and the embossing effect on it is really neat, will have to remember that!!

Beautifully done, and I love that frame!
