Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!
Our current challenge - Steampunk/Vintage is quickly coming to a close. You still have a bit of time to join in on the fun and today I have my final Steampunk card to share with you...my Steampunk Mermaid.
I started off by stamping the Steampunk Mermaid on a piece of vellum using StazOn ink. Once the ink had dried I colored the back of the image with a variety of markers and left her to dry. After the inks had dried I tore the edges and set aside.
I created the background with pigment powders in shades of blue. I stamped the Gears background stamp using VersaMark ink and embossed it using gold, silver and copper embossing powders. I crumbled up the mat several times to give it a distressed look, scraped the edges with an envelope opener then mounted it onto a blue card.
The Steampunk Mermaid was affixed to the card using liquid glue in the two corners which I covered up with a few metal gears.
I hope you have a bit of time to join in on this challenge...
