Stay Calm and Keep Sipping

It’s challenge time over at Simply Steampunk Challenges and this month’s theme is embossing folders.  For my card I have used one of the awesome new Lady Killer images from Simply B Stamps, Tea Time Tammy.

I followed a sketch from Kathy’s Waffle Sketch File and used part of the image for one of the elements of the sketch.  For my embossing, I wanted the background to be less subtle than simple embossing so I inked up my folder first with some white paint, I also spritzed my cardstock with some Smooch to give it some extra sparkle.  The purple moon is actually a piece of coloured foil I cut with a Nestie.  As for my embellies, I love the irony of the sentiment and I can’t resist big metal flowers.

Go check out the challenge page at Simply Steampunk Challenges, grab your favourite embossing folder, use a Simply B Stamp (if you want to be eligible for the prize) and come play along!
