bit of metal works


Good day

It is Friday evening and my men are occupied together. Not often dad can spend some time with his boys. Now, I'm using the time to post my latest creation. Not quite my style....steampunk. I even had to borrow a emboss folder from a friend. I did some distressing on the emboss folder with sandpaper and some ink. The designer paper is from First Edition's New Leaf collection. I bought a piece of faux ostrich leather on a sale once and I picked some pieces of metal out of my stash. On the rectangular spellbinder die cut I printed a metal works border from Carmen. It was a freebie a while ago. The image is Amelia from Sassy Studio Designs on Paper Craft planet. Their new progressive challenge started with the theme of steampunk.
