Hello Mad Scrappers! Today I have some steampunk style cards that are quick and simple to make :)
I started with some Dusty Attic chipboard pieces, Cogs frame set
and Cog Cluster
, and gave these a few quick coats of white gesso
. Then I took a selection of Tim Holtz distress sprays which would create nice rusty colours- Ripe Persimmon
, Wild Honey
and Vintage Photo
. I sprayed these over the chipboard pieces, drying and layering the colour until I was happy with the results.
Then it was time to put the card together - I cut the background paper into squares and layered these onto card blanks. Then, using soft matte gel
, I arranged the chipboard pieces into a pattern I was happy with and glued them down.
I hope these cards give you some ideas on creating your own backgrounds and different ways to colour your chipboard pieces :)
