GC93- Get to work - Steampunk kort

Not sure if you can see it, but I have really been playing with lots of mediums on this card. I've used some gold fabric and black tissue paper on a piece of carton. I've used Golden medium on the fabric and tissue paper. I really like the leather effect the black tissue paper gives.
I've used torned patternpaper from 7gybsies and lots of  metal, some of them I've covered with gold embossing. I was searching for steampunk inspiration on the internet and then I found this fantastic image. I printet her out on photopaper and  covered some of the bike with a gold pen. I've added crackle accents in the frame from Tim Holtz. For better details, click on the image.

Some details

I would love to drive to work in a motorbike like this, but then again I'm not riding any motorbike, unfortunally.
