Make My Monday - Challenge 15 - Steampunk Monochrome

Greetings everyone! It's been a rough couple of days. We had a flood come through our town and our home is one block from the river. We are back home now, and digging out. I decided to take a break tonight and get back to card making as a refuge. The theme at Make My Monday continues to be Steampunk. This week, it is to make a monochrome card. For my card, I started with a grey card base. On a white card stock panel, I sponged Pumice Stone Distressed ink. I stamped a row of homes, by Crafty Individuals, several times on a separate scrap with Pumice Stone. The rest of the images on the card are from a variety of stamp images by Artistic Outpost. I embellished the cards with metal sprockets by Tim Holtz and liquid pearls. Loving this opportunity to work on my Steampunk skills. Thanks for dropping by. Yvonne

What a fabulous steampunk card it is Yvonne. Great images and I particularly like the row of houses in front of the people.
Hope there isn't too much damage and that you can get things back to normal quickly.
Thinking of you.
