A little encouragement

is a wonderful thing, and thanks to all the lovely people who made such wonderful comments about my last card, gave me the urge to try my hand at more stamping. All of the papers used were from my stash and I've had them so long I cant remember where I got them!!! But the lacey panels were made using a Martha Stewart border puinch, the purple flourish was diecut using my Silhouette SD machine. Frame was diecut using spellbinders fleur de lys rectangle.
The steampunk figure was stamped with a stamp from the Kanban Jasper clear stamp set, onto card then cut out. I restamped the image on several coordinating papers embossing the image with silver embossing powders, cut them out and decoupaged them onto the original stamped image and finished of with tiny black silk roses on the waistband and hat.
Marabou feathers, lilac and purple silk flowers, black organza ribbon with bow and key fob charm, mauve butterfly and faux black gemstones were all added to make this (hopefully) a 21st birthday card that someone will love to receive.

Thank you, as always for stopping by. xxx
