Steampunk or Machines at Crafty Cardmakers

The challenge this time at Crafty Cardmakers was set by the lovely Ei and she asked for steamunk or machines.

As you can see from my project I went with machines, this can also include typewriters, cameras anything mechanical. Steampunk for those of you who don't know (I didn't until this challenge) is a combining of modern with very old technology. I have seen a picture of a clockwork computer yes thats correct and apparently it works very well, so for those who like to mix things up a lot Steampunk may be just your thing. If you want to see some fabulous examples of Steampunk visit the Crafty Cardmakers blog where my teamies have excelled themselves.
My project uses a flowersoft bicycle topper I used two different colours of the Flower Soft on the main image, I used some angel hair I've had forever as a backing, I wanted something there but not distracting from the main image. I mounted the topper onto some rainbow holographic card and added a deep border of flower soft to create a frame, I like the way you just get hints of the holographic. I went for an easel card again as I really like this style of card, I used some more of my bargain flowers with some brads and fancy bead caps I flattened for the middle.
