Papiravisen 7# Challenge - Steampunk

I got some new Tickled Pink Stamps “from” the postman the other day, and I had a hard time choosing which one to start with, but since I was going to make a birthday card for my nephew it had to be “Lil Victorian Steampunk Eric”. I have colored him with my promarker pens, and glued him on some black paper. On the front of the card I have used papers from 3ndy paper and My Minds Eye. I just love this new paper from “My Minds Eye” so I wanted to keep the front as “clean and simple” as possible. I started to make a rectangular card, but turned it into a “Book” card as I went along making it. The “hinges” are from Sissix - Tim Holtz Bigz dies.  (The mini flourishes on the backside as well – but a movers & shapers dies.) On the left side inside I have used a spellbinder dies, which I have distressed with Tim Holtz Distress ink – Forest Moss. Tthe spinners are from Sissix-  Tim Holtz Bigz dies. I have also actually used a real mouse trap, to hold the moneygift, I have only painted it with black acrylic paint. The key is from “Kort og Godt”. On the right side – becides steampunk Eric, I have used some Tim Holtz sprocket gears and fasteners. I have also used Sissix - Tim Holtz mini Gears Movers & shapers dies on a piece of metal paper which I embossed in Sissix – Tim Holtz Texture fade - collage2 and then brushed some black acrylic paint on. The heart is from Prima Vintage trinkets collection.
