I heat embossed the large butterfly on purple cardstock with WOW Rich Gold embossing powder and popped it up with foam tape.

Sweet Stampin' Jan 16th: Things With Wings
My second card is a striking red-black-white combo. For this card I stamped the quarter lace fragment from the Steampunk Butterfly A5 sheet to form a complete circle and heat embossed it with WOW Bright White embossing powder. And voila - a lace doily! Keeping it simple with a sentiment from the Pretty Poppies A5 sheet, heat embossed it with Zing! Opaque Rouge powder onto a piece of vellum. In keeping with the focal image, I also rounded the corners of the card with WRMK ½" Corner Chomper.

Hiding In My Craft Room #234: Embossing
There you have it - my feminine take on the steampunk style. Steampunk, like Vintage and Shabby Chic, is a mystery to me. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to work these stamps on my own terms. Yes... all you Steampunk Purists out there, feel free to snigger.... I know I am! :)
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by today. I'll see you tomorrow. There's a brand new challenge in town... and I've made a card to share with you! :) Have an awesome day, friends!
