Airship Pirate Steampunk card created for Chocolate Baroque

AW Airship Pirate

 

Good morning. Today I am sharing one of my recent samples created for the Steampunk shows recently on Hochanda. I used a few of my dies to create this nautical themed card. I hope that you like it.

Materials:

  • Steampunkery and Punky Expressions stamp sets
  • 8 X 8 inch white card blank; white, blue and brown kraft card; recycled acetate from packaging
  • Versamark and Distress Ink (Vintage Photo)
  • WOW embossing powders (white plus mix of Copper and Gold Rich)
  • Koh-I-Noor Charcoals (White)
  • Sakura Glitter and Glaze Pens (red)
  • Dies to cut a circle frame (approx. 16cm diameter – TODO), steampunk cogs (Tattered Lace, Trimcraft) and nautical themed embellishments (Couture Creations)

How it was made:

  1. I trimmed the blue card to fit the card front and leave a small white border. The sentiment and airship were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with the white powder.
  2. The circle porthole frame was cut from Kraft card. A piece of acetate was cut to fit behind.
  3. The cogs and wheel were cut from Kraft card and coloured with gold embossing powder or red glaze pen. The gulls were cut from white card.
  4. The scene was built up and coloured using the white charcoals. A little red glitter pen was added to the boat and a small die cut gull stuck down. The frame was glued over the top using 3D shaker foam. Note: you could add some sprinkles or glitter for added fun.
  5. The scroll was created from a rectangle, rolling the ends around a paint brush to curl. A little Distress Ink was added to the edges to age. The die cut embellishments were used to decorate.
