We have a new sponsor this month: Mitzi Sato-Wiuff of AuroraWings. Her images are just fantastic! Love them! And a randomly-selected participant will win a $10 gift card to her Etsy store. Be sure to go and check out her images!
I chose AuroraWings Steampunk Girl w/Doll for my card this week. I think this is such a beautiful image, and I couldn't wait to color it. I must admit it took me a while to fill in all the details, but it was really fun to color. And I was in the mood for a Steampunk card. Voila!
Guess I'd better fill in some deets. I printed the image on MICBC and colored with my Copics and one Twin Touch Brush Marker:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: Y21, YR23, YR24, YR27
Doll: E000, E00, E21
Eyes: Y21, Y23
Goggles: W2, W4, W6, Y21, YR23, YR24, E08
Hat/Dresses: BG10, BG13, BG15, BG18
Feathers/Lace/Petticoats: TTBR109, Y32, Y23
Ribbon/Flower: E02, E08, E19
Then I added a bit of Wink of Stella Brush Gold to her earring and the hat gears. My DP is from Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells Patterns & Solids, and is paired with Stampin' Up CS.
I finished the card with a Wild Orchid Craft stickpin, a metal gear charm, some feathers, a pearl spray, Stampin' Up Vanilla flower trim, and some fun Cheery Lynn die cuts:
Cheery Lynn Gear Mesh Border Steampunk
Cheery Lynn Hearts & Gears Steampunk
Cheery Lynn Owls with Gears Steampunk
Cheery Lynn Gears
I used the hearts and owls dies for the first time, and my image was also new. So that is what I chose to meet the challenge. I combined the challenge with a birthday card for my niece, Abby--her birthday is on the 13th, which is a lucky number for her. Happy Birthday, Abs!
Cheery Lynn is giving out one ebosser die cut machine to a random winner, so I am entering that contest here:
Do check out the wonderful creations by Carla, Dawn, and Linda--my talented teammates! And please get your markers out and join us!
Have a wonderful weekend! And I hope 2014 is your best year evah!
