Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I am going to show you another card in which I tried my hand at Steampunk. Also, it just happens to be our theme at The Male Room. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

This card started out as a gray sheet of cardstock. I saw this rivet background
online and had to use it for this challenge. Riveting isn't it!! LOL đŸ˜¶! Okay, that fell flat. 

New Challenge at The Male Room
For those of you that are new to Steampunk, I suggest you hop on over 
They have fantastic explanations and tutorials all about Steampunk.


a mixture of terracotta, yellow, and brown to create a pretty realistic version of rust.
 I used a heavy hand to burnish the color into the paper using colored pencils to create the rust.
I went with a monochromatic theme for this card because I thought
it had enough detail and color would only distract.

Below are some detailed photos of the card. 

Some pictures are shown in the light to illuminate the metallic color.

Well, that should do it for me. I hope you enjoyed your stay but more importantly, I hope you join our challenge at The Male Room. Until then take care and happy stamping!

All the best,
