Steampunk at Simply Papercraft

Greetings one and all, I hope you are well.
I have some exciting news today (yes, again!), I have been chosen to join the design team for a new challenge blog-Simply Papercraft. I am so pleased to be part of this.  Today sees the launch of challenge #2 Steampunk/Freestyle and this is my inspiration for it (yes, another easel card!!!).

I absolutely LOVE steampunk so making this was a pleasure :)  The fabulous image is a digi stamp from the sponsor of this challenge-Stitchy Bear Stamps.  I coloured her with Promarkers (hair and skin) and Derwent watercolour pencils before fussy cutting her out and adding her to a die cut that I had lightly stencilled with brown and gold ink through a cogs mask.
The die cut cogs I got from my stash (a stash that was created when visiting a crafting friend who has many dies!!).  The cogs were again stencilled on the base of the card before adding a cut off cog stopper featuring the sentiment.
I have many steampunk themed charms in my stash but, as I moved home just this weekend, I am not sure where they are!  These few cog charms though definately belong on this card!!
Thanks for stopping by, let me know what you think and, until next time, Happy Crafting!
