14/08/12 Yay! This card won the challenge! I'm so pleased and would like to say a big Thank You to those who chose my card.
This is a card I made for a challenge at That Craft Place. The theme is Steampunk, as chosen by Dawn Heald, and the prize is sponsored by Indigo Blu.
I started by inking the edges of an 8"x8" card blank with Distress Ink Antique Linen. I adjusted the colour of a paper from MCS Quintessential Country Garden and stamped some cogs from a Kanban set over it in Memento Rich Cocoa. I wrapped a ribbon round it and attached it to the card.
I got the corset and boots from The Graphics Fairy website. I lightened the colours from black to brown in MCS and added a bit of colour to the corset with pink Polychromos. I inked the edge of the corset and mounted onto card edged with a Shale Promarker. I decoupaged the boots for depth.
The cogs have been die-cut with a Donna Salazar die. The flowers were die-cut, with a Crealies die, from a paper I'd created in MCS. I mounted them up and inked the edges. I finished off with Cosmic Shimmer pearls.
