Steampunk’d

We have a sketch for you at Craft Your Passion.Plus we the fabulous Delicious Doodles  and The Charm Barn as our sponsor.So head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

Here’s the sketch :

For my card I’ve used the beautiful Steampunk Fairy from Delicious Doodles and coloured her with ProMarkers and her jewellery with a glitter pen.I used some Ultra Fine Nibs for the more detailed areas.I’ve made her a fIame-haired beauty to lift the brown.I distressed around her with ink leaving a glow of white around her.The backing paper I chose from my coveted Old World Stack as I thought it would go well with her.She’s honored – I don’t give this away freely!!I dry embossed a panel with cogs.Then die cut some more cogs and a bookplate and heat embossed these using a couple of thin layers of powder,sprinkling a lighter shade as I went to give a pitted,old metal feel rather than the glossy,smooth finish you usually get. A plain cog has been added behind her. Some ‘hardware’ has been added in the form of screw top brads (love these!),chain and a couple of charms,darkened with ProMarker.

*This is my first attempt at this style and my own interpretation of it.I had a lot of fun and creative time making this.Any die-hard Steampunkers out there please be kind if I haven’t captured the whole essence of it!*
