#182 For the men challenge

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!

Hi stampers, Riet here.
Today a card "for the men" challenge.
I chose a steampunk card.
And this is what you need if you want to make this card.

Distress ink,
Walnut stain,
Broken china,
Rusty hinge,
Weathered wood.
Stazon Timber brown,
Versa Magic Jumbo Java.
Versa mark.
WOW EP Egyptian turquoise.
Ranger EP Hamered=bronze colored
Corrugated cardboard.
Gears die, I used Spellbinders.
Brown and turquoise acrylic paint.
Coloring pencils or markers.
I used Derwent Colorsoft.
Foam tape.

How this card is made.
I started stamping the gears 2 stamp with versamark.

I sprinkled the Ranger hammered embossing powder on top.
Let it melt with the heat tool.

Color with a ink blending tool,
 and the Distress ink colors 
Broken china, Rusty hinge, Weathered wood the card.

Cut off the rest of the card,
 and then take a small edge of the embossing powder with it.
You stamp the text on this piece with the Stazon brown timber.

Now take a piece of corrugated cardboard.
Make sure it goes well around the card with the gears.
Paint the entire piece of corrugated cardboard with brown acrylic paint.
Dry with a heattool.

Repeat this with turquoise paint, but now only paint here and there.
The brown paint should remain clearly visible.

Now we take a piece of orange paper that is larger than the gears card,
 but smaller than the corrugated cardboard.

Distress the edges with a tool.

Make a puddle of Distressink walnut stain and water and dip the edges in it.

Die cut two sizes of gears from orange paper.
I used a set of Spellbinders.

Apply Versamark on the gears, 
but leave spots free so that the orange can still be seen later.
Sprinkle the WOW Egyptian turquoise on the gears.
Melt with the heat tool.

Isn't that beautiful?
Love the result of the embossing powder.

Now you can assemble the card by glueing the layers together.
I stuck the small gear with 1 layer of foam tape.
I stuck the large gear on with double thick foam tape.
Glue the Adventure and the flying car on.

And now you're done.
Hope you guys liked it.
Remember, you still have time to join the challenge.
You have a chance to win new rubber stamps.
But because the rules have changed, I would like to ask you to read the rules first.
This way you avoid disappointments.
Hope to see your participation at the challenge.
I wish you good luck.
