Before I get on with detailing my make I would to give a shameless plug for myself and my crafty sisters. If you have already entered The Sisters of Craft Blog Challenge - Anything Goes, you still have time, you can find the challenge here and our sponsor this month is Crafter's Companion, so if you get your skates on you still have time to be in it to win it!
This is a long post, no need to read it all but I do have a quick question at the end. Now on to my make;
The cogs & small feather poked out from behind the Queen (oo er!) are cut using Noor! dies (these dies are ideally suited to steampunk but also look great on masculine projects) and coordinations cardstock. The central image is from 100 Beautiful Sepia & Tinted Images CD by Debbi Moore. I have distressed the image using TH Vintage Photo and Black Soot DI.
The mini playing card is from a set I picked up a boot sale, you can find so many hidden little treasures at boot sales! The peg was from my stash I have distressed it using a emery board. The main image is adhered to the tag using Pinflair glue and I pushed in some pins (picked up in a charity shop) and a few strands of hessian (I'm a bit addicted to using hessian at the moment) and the flowers (also from a car boot sale).
Just one more thing I'm not sure what to do with this little creation now, when I make my cards I usually make then for friends, family or commissions or to sell to raise funds for Breast Cancer Care and the MacMillan Unit at out local hospital, may be this shoudl remain as an inspiration piece? So what do you do with your mixed media creations? No need for answers on a postcard, just comment below! :-)
