Steampunk Serengeti Blog Hop 2021 Post #31 September 5

    Once again Leigh is leading a hop...

LeighSBDesigns Steampunk Serengeti Blog Hop!
August 6 - 31, 2021

This has been extended to September 10th so a few more days!

For more details hop over to Leigh's page

My plan today was to illustrate an ostrich/emu. I have a little die which is part of a Cut,foil & Emboss Die Set. I wanted to foil it so I got out my TODO.

But I couldn't get it to heat up properly. So Plan B...

Here is today's ATC!

I used three layers of patterned paper to make the base - scraps from my stash. 
I used a kraft paper to die cut some vegetation and the patterned to cut the emus.

I added vintage photo Distress Ink round the edges and black pen to emphasise the shapes. 
Finally I added a sparkly gem.

I will link this to Leigh's Linky

Happy Crafting!


  1. Very pretty card, sorry your foil machine didn't heat up for you. The layering really makes your images show with such dimension, beautifully done, hugs, Lori m

  2. Love your ATC Susan with your die cuts and papers!
