Steampunk DAD card

If you have been reading my blog the past few days, I described my artistic block.  This was the first card that I tried. It sat on my desk for days. I began by stenciling a background with Distress inks.  Then it sat for a few more days. I didn't want to layer too much on top of my handiwork so I used a scrap of paper behind the silhouette die cut.  This is the card I sent my dad.
