OK, this is also 'my first time ever'. I like steampunk cards very much, but I was afraid of making one, 'cos I still think I'm not good enough yet. But I have to try to find out.

While making of this card I used only rubber / sillicone stamps & ink. There are also a few elements taken from a scrapbook sets I bought a few months ago.
There's so much going on here... Let's start from the shiny 'metal' parts.
I still haven't got a die cut machine, so I had to make my own gears with scissors. Close enough LOL
The sentiment is written by me on such kind of sequins with a permanent marker. It says 'Don't be afraid to dream'.
And if this is a dream, the clock is having three hands - why not? There is also an elephant with wings, and some of its feathers are from metal, as well as the fasten machinery. These are the stams from THIS and THIS Viva Decor sets. The stamp with the Vitruvian Man is very pale, but that's OK.
The Post Card is made with Big Shot die cutting machine, which I was able to try last week at some craft workshop, and I'm sure - I WANT IT!!! I have to save some money for this beauty.
Anyway, I was also playing with ink while making inside part of this card (with my 'blending tool' LOL).
The steampunk party takes place in the following challenges: gears
