Steam Punk Babe

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.
