I chose to make a traditional Steampunk male card to show off this fabulous digi image. The image I used is The Vintage Steampunk Bath Chair. These were the early forms of wheelchairs and named because they were invented by James Heath from Bath in England in the first half of the 18th century.  

I matted gold mirri onto an 8"x 8" card blank and layered a paper from Bearly Mine after 
wrapping with seam binding. I used a few of the clocks from the paper for the corner embellishment     and mounted them on foam pads.

I printed the Bath chair image after altering the colour to brown and roughed the edges with scissors. I used Distress Ink Antique Linen to shade the background before matting onto gold mirri. I attached it to the card with foam pads for dimension.

I tied seam binding into a knot and added a fob watch charm. I created the sentiment on the computer and finished the card with three card candi.
