All gone Steampunk.........

Over at Just Inspirational this week our sponsor is the fabulous Sassy Studio Designs.
If anyone's not seen these images then you're really missing out, they have some absolutely amazing digis and I love working with them. Our inspirational picture this week is 'Steampunk'
 with the optional choice of working with a sketch designed by Kelly

Well, I have to admit my intial reaction was 'what on earth do I create that classes as steampunk?' It's a style that I've never actually worked with before, it's completely new to me and I definitely had to think outside the box and push myself out of my comfort zone for this one - thankfully my hubby's a little bit more up on steampunk than I am so was able to help me out in my hours of need lol!!

For my card I chose to work with 'Steampunk Josephine' coloured with promarkers, backing papers are a digi download from Digi Scrapbook Boutique. The cogs and clock face were diecuts I bought from ebay - then inked them and covered with pewter embossing powder and added a length of old chain to make it look a bit more steampunk lol!!!!! Considering there's not a flower, ribbon or speck of glitter in sight I'm really pleased with how this came out, might even consider doing more!!!

Don't forget to go and check out the rest of the DT's amazing creations - and this week sees some new additions to our talented DT
