For this card I demolished two old cards that I made with backgrounds created with acrylic paint, masks and the gelli plate, using an offcut of shiny green paper with a bit of a texture and some pictures and a sentiment that I've had for ages - the sentiment says 'Birthday wishes' - difficult to see because it's sort of engraved in the matt silver.
You can see one of the cards here and read about how the background was created - and the other is here. I never used them - thought they were both a bit dull - so time to demolish them and put them to better use!
This is for:
Sandee & Amelie's steampunk challenge July: inventions & inventors - I wonder if the inventor of the microchip and computers ever envisaged how commonplace in all areas of life they were to become?
