Steampunk and Metal at CCCC

Hello Everyone,

I'm excited to tell you about the new challenge at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenges:


What a fabulous challenge theme I am sure you will agree. I love steampunk, but have never tried it myself, so this card needed a little bit of thinking time. I actually bought a chipboard clock for it, but when I put it together the clock just didn't work. So here's what I came up with:

The image is Steampunk Josephine from Sassy Studios. My little butterflies are my metal additions. The background paper is "Steampunk Debutante Collection" from Graphic 45. Background mesh ribbon and lace are from my stash. I coloured Josephine with all my earth tone copics to create this rather sepia monochrome look.

Our challenge this fortnight is sponsored by Sassy Studio and Robin's Nest - check out the Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenges blog for all the details and to check out the fabulous steampunk creations from the team.

Also entered into the following challenges:
Stamp n Doodle - Monochrome
Whimsy Stamps Challenges - Monochrome

See you again soon!

I love this! Having never attempted the whole steampunk style, it intimidates me a little, but you have embraced it beautifully! Josephine has that whole Mad Max, Beyond Thunderdome thing going! Love it!!
