I love the 'Steampunk' style of art and these two new dies are just a perfect example of that genre.
I looked up Steampunk and genre and this is what I found:
Steampunk fashion is a subgenre of the steampunk movement in science fiction. It is a mixture of the Victorian era's romantic view of science in literature and elements from the Industrial Revolution in Europe during the 1800s.
For my card I have found the perfect background from a CD by Glenda Waterworth - Artylicious - Seasons Greetings - Disk 1.
The background has 'stars' as you see, but to me, they look like cogs within stars and therefore perfect for steampunk. The blended blues that Glenda used also seems perfect for my scene of Santa flying his motorised sleigh/balloon across the skies on his present delivering mission. Even the sentiment is pure steampunk.
Here is the card:
'The Art of Craft'. I wish you could see the way that they sparkle Santa and the sentiment were die cut from the double-sided pearlised card that I also purchased from 'The Art of Craft'.
I think that this truly one of my favourite Christmas cards of the year 2018. I confess that I have made another three but for one of the extras I used a goldish coloured background from the same CD with gold snowflakes and coloured gems.
The dies that I used are by Creative Expressions - Flying Santa.
