Jem's Designs Steampunk For Him cd Samples

This was created by printing out the backing paper on premium glossy photo paper which I then glued to white card using spray adhesive (Crafter's Companion Stick & Stay). The twisted decoupage was also printed on premium glossy photo paper and I used a piece of matching paper to create the sentiment bar with Spellbinder Edgeabilities Classic Postage Stamp. The greeting peeloff was coloured with black marker pen and brads, Tim Holtz sprockets and bulb were added to complete the design.
This gatefold design was printed onto white cardstock and matted and layered with backgrounds from the cd. The twisted image design was inked using Distress Inks and layered on to gold mirri board and then backed with matching background paper as it is visible when the card is opened. The large clock face was glazed using my favourite 3d Crystal Lacquer to give a glass like finish. The sentiment tag was made using Spellbinders Grommet Tags. Gold chain peeloffs and gold brads complete the design.
This decoupage design was made from printed images from the cd. It was matted on to old gold checkered cardstock. This was also used to create a sealed down side edge which had brown leather thong wrapped around and decorated wire coils and card candy. The main elements have been highlighted with Metallic Rub Ons in Copper, Pewter, Brass, Ruby and Blue. A gold peeloff sentiment completes the design.
