Digital Tuesday - Steampunk Challenge

This week at Digital Tuesday we would like to see Steampunk cards. Talk about a challenge ;)  I have never even attempted a steampunk anything before this and I kinda think my card turned out as a gothic/steampunk hybrid.  I used the very gothy Little Red from Spesch Stamps and did my usual colouring with prisma pencils on watercolour paper.......


I did have loads of fun grunging and painting this with distress inks, glimmerglaze and glimmerglam.  It is the first time I have got really messy and creative with the TA glimmer products and it was AWESOME FUN!  I used a Tim Holtz die to cut the gears and the pearls are prima which I altered using glimmerglaze in saffron.

Thanks loads for coming by.......
