Valentine's Day Card - Steampunk with Peek-a-boo window

Valentine's Day Card - Steampunk with Peek-a-boo window

I participated in a Valentine's Day Steampunk card swap with Cynchronicity and I was happy to learn that I was making something special for my friend Bambi.

I love the 'gears' envelope from ProvoCraft for the Cuttlebug!
Here's the card that I can now publish because she has just received it. 

I started with plain white Superstock (thank you, Cathie Allen) and inked and stamped my colours on as I pleased.

I cut out one of the gears to make a little window for my steampunk bird to show through.

This adorable stamp is part of a 4 part plate from Queen Kat Designs.

I stamped the image twice to have a shadow piece underneath. Coloured with Copics and then gave a glossy finish with Glossy Accents.

Sentiment was printed on my laser printer, in 'Steampunk Font', on cardstock.  I crumpled the paper and then distressed it with Tim Holtz distress ink and added some pink marker.
Thank you for stopping by!
