Fresh Steamed Punk for Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Happy happy Father's Day to you and yours!  Today I thought I'd share a masculine themed coffee card with you.  When I found THIS awesome vintage coffee label at The Graphics Fairy, I just knew it needed to be the background of my next steampunk card.   I printed it to size and inked it up with Distress puddles, trying a new technique.  I distressed all of the edges with my scissors, then dipped them into my puddled ink.  I really like the effect, especially on this background.  The grey around the gentlemen, not so much, but I went with it for contrast.

I suck this tag behind my layers so that when the coffee giftcard is removed, the word shows perfectly.  I was so excited that my local coffee house's gift card matched my project idea!  ;0  

The gears were gifted via the Queen's royal airmail (how fun!) by the lovely and talented Redanne.  I inked them, embossed them with Distress EP, then smudged Distress Crayons onto them, wetting and setting.  I just love the texture!  I added some bronze brads and mounted this one onto a piece of shimmery bronze cardstock, which was so fun to use too!
