Project Tuesday - Easel Card

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥

I have been wanting to do a steampunk card for awhile, but gosh, they are so hard. It is a style I have admired for many years, and maybe I have it or maybe not, either way, still a good card ! (AND I will keep trying...)

Click on the pic for a nice up close view. I know it looks like I put a magnifying glass on it, but that is really a part of the image. I just put some Ranger gloss on the glass part, and I think it looks pretty real.

Project Tuesday
has an easel card project this week. Who doesn't love that kind of card ! It looks complicated, and always sharp. (Don't ever tell your recipient how easy they really are !)

The art on the top of the card is Rob Kleemen.

Hope you enjoy - I am definitely going to keep trying with this style, as it really is my most favorite to look at it, and I would love to gain some finesse.

Have a wonderful wonderful day !
