Steampunk Birthday card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Gift it".

This week I was in the mood for a bit of steampunk, but with a twist. I started with the Mechanics 3D Embossing Folder and gave it a metallic effect with Nuvo Mousse Seaspray Green and Black Ash by applying it with a blending tool. Then a more rusty brown tint mixed in by using Metallique Wax Bronze Age. What does that wax smell nice!  


To give more depth to the color and give it a more rusty effect, I used three colors of Nuvo Shimmer Powder, Green Parade, Atlantis Burst and Storm Cloud. And to apply a bit more texture, I used Patina Oxide Baking Powder here and there.




To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.
