"The Mechanics of Flight" Just Steampunk vol 3 with Lost Coast Designs

Happy Friday to you all!
I've been waiting a long time and I think I'm okay to now share some of my creations that were published in Just Steampunk vol 3 2013 :0)
Today I'm sharing my card that actually made the cover of the issue, squeeeee, that features Lost Coast Designs stamps!
"The Mechanics of Flight" 
All stamps used are by Lost Coast Designs
Steampunk Fly Girl
Numbers Border
Measuring Tape Border

I stamped the Steampunk Fly Girl image with Onyx Black Memento Ink onto Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers with silver and gold metallic details added with Promarkers.   The panel was die cut out with the largest Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles die and the edges distressed with a Tonic Paper Distresser tool before the background was colored with Derwent Pastel pencils blended with a Dove Blender pen.    I used the same Spellbinders die as a template and traced the shape onto black cardstock with a pencil and cut it out with scissors and adhered the panels together with Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.  All four corners were then punched with a 1/16" hole punch and real tiny screws pushed through the holes.  The screws started out black and I colored the tops silver with a metallic Sharpie pen.

The background panel was made from light brown cardstock and embossed with a Cuttlebug 5x7 Clockworks embossing folder.  The edges were distressed with a Tonic Paper Distresser tool and the entire panel was treated with Pumice Stone and Black Soot Distress Inks applied with a foam ink applicator.

The two border strips were stamped onto light grey-brown cardstock with Walnut Distress Ink and trimmed to fit the large background panel.  The gear embellishments were die cut with Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Movers and Shapers Mini Gears Set and Gadget Gears dies out of Grungeboard paper and treated with a combination of Tarnished Brass and Brushed Pewter Distress Stains.  I made faux screw heads from the circles that came out of the gadget dies and drew the black lines with a black Sharpie ultra fine point marker and colored the rest with a silver Sharpie pen.  Everything was adhered to a folded card made from black cardstock with Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive except for the main panel which was adhered with dimensional Create and Craft Silicone Glue because of the real screws I used.
I'll be sharing more of my published creations over the next week so I hope you'll stop by to see them!
Have a great weekend!

Happy Stamping!
