Steampunk in Black and White

Greetings dear friends!  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  My card above is for the current challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu, which is "Black and White."  I do not often work in just black and white, but I really do like this color combination and found this to be a very enjoyable challenge. Beginning with a blank white card base, I used Wendy Vecchi's Black Embossing Paste with a Tim Holtz Stencil in the upper left corner.  Various black and white tissue tapes by Idea-ology were added next.  Also by Idea-ology, are the rub-ons I added to the card front.  The images, inked for the first time, are by Lost Coast Designs.  The sentiments are by Artistic Outpost.  Buttons and Idea-ology Sprockets, which were painted with Black Soot Distress Paint complete my card.  This is our last challenge until the new year.  I hope you will stop over and see all the gorgeous samples by the rest of the Design Team, and then, create a project of your own.  

I am also entering my card over at Our Creative Corner where they are having a Steampunk Challenge with Tic Tac Toe, having used Gears, Texture (buttons) and Transport.  What a fun challenge!

Thanks so much for stopping.  Hugs, Yvonne

This Steampunk design is fabulous, Yvonne! I just love this style, but I've never dared to try it out myself - don't know where to begin and what to use - but I get lots of inspiration from this card. I think the black and white color scheme works really well for this design!
