Steampunk

On this day in 1828 French Novelist Jules Verne was born, one of the first writers of science fiction ( Twenty Thousand leagues Under the Sea). We often refer to this visionary as being an inspiration for a number of aspects within the Steampunk movement.
I had so much fun creating my Steampunk inspired Goggles card because the wackier the better!

This is an easel card that has a goggle shaped easel front using the diecut cogs from the Kanban  Cog Sheets and the amazing toppers from  the Time Machine collection . The pearl 5mm Bling is perfect in the gunmetal to imitate rivets and by using acetate behind each of the large cogs it really creates a sense of perspective and offers the opportunity to heavily embellish the one lens.By placing the time traveller images behind  the lens it almost gives the illusion of the view of the wearer reflecting the scene before him! How deep is that!
