Steam Punk Babe - Steam Punk is not my favorite style, but since it is the challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity, I tried my hand at it and I am pleased with the outcome. One thing about being on a design team is that it forces you to move out of your comfort zone and that is a good thing!
I hope you like my card as much as I do.
I started my card with some Tim Holtz designer paper, Vintage Shabby. I inked everything with Frayed Burlap distress inks. I also used lots of pink Fran-tage embossing powder. Fran-tage is such a fun product to use.
My image is Steam Punk Vivian, by our sponsor, Sassy Studio Designs. I colored her with Copics and cut her with a SB die. I added some metal wings that I won in a challenge. I also used some cheese cloth under the cut image.
My flowers are made using the designer paper and cutting them with a SB Posy die. I stacked and wet them to shape them around a paper piercer. I coiled some colored wire around a paintbrush to spiral it. I used a Bow Easy to tie the bow.
The card was finished off with 3 lt coffee colored pearls.

Made Top 4 at Sketchy Colors!!! I can't tell you what an honor this is. I have drooled over their DT cards since I found them and felt that I would have "arrived" if I ever made their top 4, and now I have!
