#82 Use metal - Key To My Heart

Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - use metal
Prize & sponsor - £10 gift voucher from Joanna Sheen

This week for my DT card, I have used one of Kenny K's fabby new images in the Steampunk range called 'Captain Locke', who just happens to be clutching a ring of keys just the right size for my metal key charm to be attached to. What better choice then for our 'metal' theme this week!  I even managed to add a bit more metal too, with the addition of the white brads down the side.  Ms Locke has of course, been coloured with my Promarkers - as has the super winged padlock from Kim Lariviere .

I altered the base dp by adding my own cog wheels to it & stencilling large wheels using the designs I made for the card on my last post (drawing concentric circles & cutting slits into the outer rim to make the cog shaping) & inking through. Sadly, I then covered a lot of this up!  Doh! LOL.  I also inked around the edges of my papers using Distress Ink.  As you might know my now, I love the Fleur de Lis dies from the Spellbinders range so couldn't resist adding another one here in a corner & then embossed one of my panels.  I then layered it all up using both foam pads & glue gel for a bit of dimension.

For the inside of the card today I layered up some of the same card & papers, creating my own sentiment on the inside on the PC but incorporating the heart/scroll (that came without the wording - I added that), from Bird's Cards and the key to the side which was from Kim Lariviere. The white rectangular piece of card is where I can pop the name & 'from' etc.

Hope you like it!
