Well it seems steampunk's making a bit of a re appearance at the mo as I seem to be coming across it everywhere I look, which is all good as I LOVE it!!!
This is my latest steampunk offering

I tried to put lots of texture and interest into the background to begin with and used a piece of pearly patterned paper from my stash. After fixing it to the card blank I used a cogs Splodgeaway mask and embossed it which shows up really well on the left hand side.I then coloured the white cardstock with crushed olive distress ink and addad a border with the pear green promarker to add definition. The 'tag' shape was diecut and then embossed with a Tim Holtz folder which was then sanded. The sentiment is from creative expressions and was stamped onto a piece of card coloured with distress ink as before. I added a liberal sprinkling cogs which were die cut from pearly paper with an xcut die- my new fave - love them!

My image is from Kenny K and she's called Scarlet West! I love Kenny K digis as they all have loads of attitude! I coloured her with my promarkers and added lots of foiling to highlight her buttons, buckles and jewels lol!

A closer look at the sassy Scarlet!

Beautiful in Blue !

I have real problems colouring blonde hair without it looking yellow!!! The challenge at graph'it this week is...... blonde hair so it gave me a kick up the rear to get my markers out n have another go.
This is the result
For the back I used pale blue pearlised card which I embossed with the psychedelic splodgeaway mask to add texture. The spotty paper is from dovecraft basics range which was matted onto textured silver mirricard.
My image is from Saturated canary and she's been coloured with promarkers then die cut- can't remember what make die! As usual I've finished her off with foiling on her earrings! I just love foiling and makes no mess unlike when I get my paws on glitter !!! lol                                   
Thanx for stopping by today. Have a fab day whatever you're doing. Hugz, Jayne xxxx
