Sentimental Sundays - Fairies and Fantasy

Hello bloggers

This week at Sentimental Sundays we have a fairies and fantasy week.  I'd normally pick fairy and go for something really cute, but I'd got to make a Gothic card for a friend so thought I'd err on the side of fantasy... dark fantasy!

This image is from our sponsor, although its one I brought a while ago and haven't yet used.

Our sponsor is Rick St Dennis and heres my card made from this image and some other gloopy stuff... very different from my usual style!

The images was coloured with promarkers and a fine dusty in mica powder (although you cant see this in the photo!)
I then cut out cogs using my silhouette (2 of each) and glued them together for dimension.  I used a chip board frame, some card candi and a couple of buttons for the background, then covered the entire thing in  a couple of layers of acrylic paint.  I then used gold gilding wax and red mica powder to add colour to the background before mounting the picture and using a computer generated sentiment to finish the card.

et voila  steampunk meets fantasy!

Hope my Goth friend likes it!

See you all soon
