February 2015 create a card kit challenge entry

This was my entry for February's card challenge. 

The design brief was to make a mans steampunk card using the items provided in the kit. I decided to make an easel card for this challenge. I used a sizzix cog dye to cut cog shapes out of the paper and distressed the cut out cogs with walnut stain to stick them on later. I used the clock stamp provided to make two clocks using gold embossing powder, left one whole and cut the other one for a different effect. The flowers were also distressed with walnut stain. I used the clock stamp on the base of the card with spiced marmalade distress ink. The wooden cogs I distressed with shaded lilac as well as the background on the card and put some gilding flakes around the cogs. The cord I just croched a simple chain to give it a chain effect on the card.
