Steam Punk


We have fantastic sponsors, Kenny K, Lacy Sunshine and Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.


I have used a Kenny K image called Lady Victoria and being my first Steam Punk card I decided to use mainly Black and Blues for colours.

I have also used a Tim Holtz Die called "On the Edge", a Sizzix Die 659706 "Rondeaux" and the clocks have been stamped in Pacific Point and I am sure the image is a Non Sequitur.

The paper and lace are from my stash and the sentiment is a circular sentiment from Lily of the Valley.

The image has been coloured in with Copic Markers.
