Our friend, Carol, is having a birthday next Monday. However, our dinner club is getting together this Friday at Distrito, (I can hardly wait, the food there is sooo yummy!), so I want to give her the card that evening. That's why this is done already.
I decided to use some new Cheery Lynn dies from their Steampunk release, so I searched for an image to go with them. And I found Stitchy Bear Steampunk Hat, which I immediately purchased. I knew it would go well with the die cuts I was planning to make.
And, fortunately for me, The Corrosive Challenge is having a Steampunk challenge this week, and I actually have something to enter. Cool beans, huh?
I printed the image on MICBC and colored it with my Copic and Twin Touch Brush markers:
Skin: E000, TTR131, TTR139, TTYR133
Hair: YR20, YR21, E31
Eyes: B21, B23
Metallic pieces: C2, C4, C6
Feathers: C4, C6, C8
Hat/Necklace: E81, E84, E87
Hatband/Strap: E02, E08, E09
I added some Wink of Stella Brush Silver to her glasses and hat chain. The DP, from Basic Grey Indie Bloom, (and BG Picadilly inside), was distressed and paired with Stampin' Up CS. I used an SU brad for the hands on the watch and added some feathers to the card. Otherwise, the design elements are all cut from Cheery Lynn dies: Gears; Steampunk Gear Mesh Border; Steampunk Pocket Watch; and inside I used Steampunk Chain Mesh Border and Happy Birthday.
And that's it! Hope you're all having a great week.
