Delicious Steampunk

I was browsing the web and getting lost in Blogland and all of the fabulous creations that are being made when I came across The Delicious Doodles Blog  and most importantly the gorgeous Digi Stamps for sale in the shop. I just had to have this stamp. I luuurve it!!
She is gorgeous isn't she? I have never made a Steampunk style card before so this was a challenge, I like challenges!
This is the finished result

Didn't turn out too bad did it? I have never coloured Auburn/Ginger hair before but i'm loving how it turned out. I made her slightly 3D by cutting and colouring 3 layers and colouring the parts that are  to be seen with Promarkers.
I made the backing sheet myself with a lot of fiddle farting about using distress inks blobbed over a piece of card then I worked some Cosmic Shimmer Mica Powders into the card to make it metalic looking then let it dry before cutting to size and mounting onto black card that I had distressed the edges of. The frame is from the Silhouette cutting file site, I applied a bit of the cosmic shimmer to that also.
I made the cogs out of card cut to shape on my silhouette then made them all coppery and rusty with the shimmer powder again. I also steampunked up the little butterfly charm with the help my Promarkers and cosmic shimmers also!! The state of my hands and desk after all of this experimenting!!!!!

I will be entering the card into the Delicious Doodles Challenge - Layer It Up!

take care

  4. Awesome hun!
    Can I beg a small favour though?
    Could you possibly pop some words over the first image, as I don't want folk to use the preview for their own use. There are a few unscrupulous peeps out there who don't like purchasing for themselves.
    Many thanks, oh, and feel free to delete this comment after if you like hun.
    Hope I haven't offended you at all. . .
