Those magnificent men in their flying machines

Last weekend we went to the 60th birthday party of a friend. It was a fancy dress party, and our host dressed as Biggles. So when I decided to make a thank you card, I was delighted to find this super set of images in the Kanban Steampunk Themed Card Kit from Foil Play. Now Steampunk is a style that tends to be outside my comfort zone - it's a whole, complex genre that isn't limited to just craft - yet once I started playing with the die cuts, toppers and backgrounds, the inspiration simply kept on coming......


 





I am sharing these with:
The Male Room - Up in the Air (No birds)
Shopping Our Stash - For the boys
