Sketch Swap Card

Here is a picture of the Sketch Swap card that I made for Just Cards group. The background was made by applying green and gold metalic paint over punchinella. Then I use an antique brown to give it a distressed look. The three pictures are from a steampunk collage page from Altered Pages. I used a strip from a book to make the ribbon and distressed it with the antique brown. The buckle was covered with some of the same paper and was also distressed. The flower was just a strip of the same paper which I twisted as I glued it down to a paper circle which was then attached to the buckle. I hope this is clear enough.
