Steampunk Flight

Steampunk Flight By Lizzie Dzadiek

 Mdf pieces – hot air balloon and the word flying from samantha k’s steampunk collection
Paper elements – clockface from the Time Collection, Birdcage from the Steampunk Collection.
Dovecraft copper metalic pigment ink pad
Flowers from 49 and market
Happy travels stamp set from cardmaking and papercraft magazine 
Printed paper pad from The Works 
White acrylic paint and brown watercolour for the splashes. 

For this card I used elements from both the Samantha K Crafts Time and steampunk collections.
First I coloured the hot air balloon by pressing into a metallic copper ink pad and then fussy cut the clockface and bird cage. I chose to leave the mdf word flying natural as I liked the contrast.
After cutting the birdcage out I applied a wash of brown ink over it as it was slightly pink in colour and I wanted it to blend in more with the other elements. After layering the cardstock I stamped the sign post then applied the paper pieces with foam pads and used a glue gun to attach the mdf pieces.
I added a few splashes of white acrylic and brown watercolour paint.

Hello All,

I posted yesterday on Facebook and since then I have been messaged by a few people asking what i would pick 3D printer wise. So i thought i would share this here and there incase anyone is interested.

These are my opinions only and i would 100% recommend anyone do their own research before purchasing a 3D printer. There are lots of other brands out there, Anycubic and Creality were two other brands i looked at, but for me Elegoo always seem to be slightly ahead or the same specs for less money and they have a great reputation in the industry.

If i couldn’t have got the Saturn, I would have gone for the Mars 2 pro, however the mars 2 is just as good if you want to save some pennies, the main differences between these two, are the pro has a very marginly bigger build area, has air filtration, has aluminum vat and knobs rather than plastic and a few more bits. None affect the quality of the models that come off though as both have the same light source/screen.

I would not go for the Mars (not linked) as the improvements between that and the 2 were quite a jump, including the much better mono screen and its all about the screen with these machines ? (well kinda lol)

I have linked the two mentioned below on Amazon as this is the best price i found, especially as a prime member and today being the last day of prime deals you get a chunk off, in fact with your savings you can get a bottle of resin for the printer and still have change from the normal price
Hope this helps (remember the prime member prices are only whilst prime day is on!)

Mars 2 £200 – £152 if prime member

Mars 2 pro £280 – £224 if prime member

This is the resin i have purchased to start me £34 for 1000ml – £27.20 if prime member
