I have seen the style trend of steampunk grow slow and steady. I like the juxtaposition of the elements of vintage and sci-fi. I had created this file but didn't have a chance to cut it and since then have seen a few articles on steampunk. I did this for a card for my son's graduation. I wanted something masculine and trendy.
I tried to add a few details to the card. One is that the front is shaped and follows the outline of the gears on the front.
I also took a shadow layer of the group of gears and put that on the inside for some interest.
I am going to add a gear with the inside sentiment to layer on top of this. Something like- "To start your future." I made the clock and the gears in MTC using basic shapes I was able to get the clock all as one piece with the exception of three I's that I had to glue separately.
Thanks for stopping by!
