Steampunk Postcard by Mandy C

What I used:

StazOn Dove Gray
Distress Stain - Walnut

  • Firstly use white card and make a background by spritzing colours you like over the card. Leave to dry - or dry with a heat tool.
  • Use the Distress Stain around the edge of the card.
  • Stamp with Stazon Dove Grey over the background using Warehouse District Curiosity text.
  • Using Sepia Archival, stamp the row of pen nibs from Mini Classics across the bottom of the card.  Above that, in Coffee Archival, stamp the 3 gents and above that stamp the sentiment. (I went wonky, so had to re-do it on some card and attach it)
  • Stamp the cogs and the clock hand from the PaperArtsy set around the card.
  • Stamp out the ticket from Game of Life, cut out and adhere to the card under the gents.
  • Use a white pen to highlight.
  • Using the black fineliner, edge the card with lines.



  1. The white pen really adds something. Love it!

  2. Hi Mandy, fabulous masculine card, love the muted pastel background and as Deborah says the white highlights really add depth. xx

  3. Fabulous card.. your inky background is something else.. my kinda card :-)
