Here's a Steampunk scene that is inspired by Spring. Now if we'd only get the appropriate weather! I am so very ready to enjoy some warm weather and the sight of flowering trees, birds in their spring plumage, and beautiful butterflies.
This card features SCACD's new Butterfly Chrysalis rubber stamp, which is part of SCACD's Eclectic Collection #2.
As usual, I googled "Chrysalis" and was delighted to discover that they can be golden, which works with the quasi-Steampunk feel of this image. I then googled "Emerging Butterfly" and found a butterfly image with the coloration you see above. I do like having a tiny bit of reality intrude into my fantasy scenes. It's the Virgo in me. :D
Butterfly Chrysalis was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, then edged with black marker. Butterfly Chrysalis was set aside while I worked on the rest of the card.
Blue cardstock took a ride through my Big Kick (Sizzix) on top of the Clocks Embossing Plate (Cherry Lynn Designs). Gold Bling metallic specialty paper (FiberMark) from my stash was die-cut with SCACD's Breezy Branches Statement Corner and SCACD's Alice's Clock Statement Corner dies. Rose Gold, Gold, and Green Bling metallic specialty paper was die-cut with Mini-Gears, Deluxe Gear set, and the Antique Gear set (Memory Box). The gears were layered atop the corner dies and KaiserCraft Pearls were added to the center of most of the gears. Green metallic specialty paper was die-cut with the A Hint of Lime font dies by Die-Versions for the sentiment.
Thanks for visiting today!
