Steampunk Father's Day Card for ScrapBerry's

Welcome to my creative space!

Father's Day is just around the corner and my husband has always been such a wonderful dad! To celebrate this special day, I've created a steampunk themed card for him featuring ScrapBerry's Words Live Forever Collection. I just adore the opportunity to create masculine projects like this!

Please don't forget!
ScrapBerry's is hosting a family themed challenge during May and June.
Be sure to stop by the ScrapBerry's blog for all the challenge details
and inspiration by the talented design team HERE.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for ScrapBerry's. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

Tips and Techniques 
I hand cut this fabulous stopwatch from the Words Live Together Stopwatches page and popped it up with foam tape to tuck the ScrapBerry's Silver Set of Wings coming out from under each side. I topped it with a chipboard gear from my stash that I heat embossed with dark gold embossing powder and metal clock hands. 

I used the ScrapBerry's Butterflies Wings Clear Stamps to accent around the paper edge for a grungy border. To add texture I adhered silver chunky glass glitter and Prills below the clock.

This paper is perfect for a masculine card. The Holiday Romance Chipboard Elements No. 3 collection includes this fabulous arrow. It's so quick and easy to give chipboard a metallic look by heat setting with gold or silver embossing powder.

The grungy background is created by stenciling a grid design with Black Lava Gel Medium. For a subtle touch, I used grey ink to stencil clock designs onto the background paper as well.
