Delicious Doodles Steampunk Sally

Good Morning, All 

This post is to coincide with a post at Delicious Doodles to introduce myself. Both posts
are scheduled to go live at 8am BST.
If you are reading this it must have worked!

I made this card a few days ago using 

one of the lovely images from  Teri's fair hand,
which I thought it would be a good way to introduce myself  as
Steampunk has been one of my favourite genres for
 a long time.


M and M
(Materials and Method)

I coloured Sally in with Promarkers and brought texture by adding gems, pearls,
rivets, feathers.

I surrounded the image with a frame of Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and tried
to emphasise the advertisements featuring  light bulbs and fountain pens.

I made an A4  frame of purple foam rubber and cut out an apperture using a
grand scalloped square by Spellbinders.

Around the frame I made a few little features using Crafty_Emblies with
cogs, keys, clock. I also added metal cogs and wire wrapped some
bulbs onto metal cogs.

I used a calendar with a future date and a little mask from
Venetian Accents and Motifs from Spellbinders.

For me, nothing screams eclectic like steampunk and I have tried
to reflect that by bringing many different materials.
