Cardz 4 Galz ‘steampunk’

Hi there. A new challenge has begun at Cardz 4 Galz, and this time the theme – chosen by Deborah – is Steampunk.

Now – this is not something I’m familiar with, but a Kit and Clowder class featured this gorgeous PowerPoppy digital stamp – which I thought suited the theme perfectly. (I see it’s also on sale at the moment too!)

Here is my card:

This is my first go at colouring this stamp using the directions from Alyce at Kit and Clowder – and I like how this turned out.

Coloured with Copics – the whole thing took me about 5 or 6 hours – following her directions and advice as close as I could. I also have some process pictures:

the butterflies first
then the clock
then the cogs and flowers

I still have some work to do on my fine-line colouring – but I suppose that is the point of taking these classes.

I hope you can come and join us for this challenge – I’d love to see your take on the ‘steampunk’ girlie theme………… xx
