Steampunk goes wild...



This was soooo much fun to create... I've been working on it for about two weeks, not really sure what I was doing, but loving the images so much that just kept trying to mix and match them to get it all to come together. I started with the adorable ladies from TidlyInks, then came up with the wonderful Steampunk treehouse from Make It Crafty. Then added the amazing frame from Delicious Doodles. After all the coloring with my Copics I layed some scrap paper, some funky ribbon mesh , some lace, on the background before adding the images. The the buttons, butterfly, roses, flowers, and the such all found a home on the by-now-very-heavy card. I ended up spraying some Glimmer Mist in copper over most of it, giving it a little added sparkle and speckled grunge look. I hope you enjoy!

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Make It Monday - #54 - Linky Party

Sunday's With Crissy - #21 - Friends

Paper Sundaes - #86 - Finishing Touches

Paper Play - #36 - Use 2 or More Stamped Images

DYSU - #37 - Textures

My Mums Craft Shop - Layer it Up

Truly Scrumptious - #65 - Decorate the Inside

TidlyInks - #64 - Good Bye Summer, Hello Fall

That's it for now - I'm off to try and find my craft table under all that leftover stuff piled on top! Hope your Monday is amazing!
