Birthday Steampunk

Another card from one of my stamped up pieces. The main panel was an inked piece of glossy card- just Distress  Inks swiped onto a craft or Splodge Away mat, then the white card dragged through, or dipped onto it. Its overstamped in Black Versafine when dry, with an assortment of paper Artsy stamps.
 Then I decided to cut it into squares and matt it as a mosaic, onto black card.
 The base card was covered in a sheet of black paper that had been sprayed with a Purple mica mist spray.
I added a torn strip of paper from the Chronology paper pack, which is a sort of dirty purple colour.

I sponged on some more colour to it with DI in Dusty Concord & Chipped Sapphire.

Then ran it through the Cuttlebug in the Clockworks Cuttlebug folder.

I brought out the embossing detail by swiping the Chipped Sapphire pad over the raised areas.

This was added to the card front with DST, then the mosaic panel added on top.
An assortment of metal embellishments were added with Glossy Accents along with a triple embossed heart.
 The Birthday word, from Chocolate Baroque, was stamped & heat embossed onto a scrap of the inked card.
