Steampunk Mary



Our new theme over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges  is 'Steampunk'.
I hope you will pop over and see what my  team mates  have been making and get all the details.
Remember we like to see stamping on your project.


I realy enjoyed making this larger size card 8 x8 inches.
The background papers came from Jem's designs Steampunk CD.
Layered with plain card, I also cut out and added  a few spanners to go behind the clock.
The stamps are Andy Skinner- on the clock face
 and Graphics 45-lady with the key
Cogs and Clock, which I embossed with antique gold  are Tim Holtz die cuts.
All  shading is  Tea Dye and Vintage Photo distress inks, with water colours to colour Mary.

Challenges-
Out of the Hat Creations -Challenge 9 Bingo, my line is Flowers, Die Cuts, Bling [gems in the flowers] and an Image.
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything Goes

  8. Hi
    This is stunning Yvonne. Slightly dark and menacing as though Tim Burton created it.

  14. Fantastic card! I'm imagining that Mary is looking back to someone calling out to her ... but off she's going anyway, climbing into a clock works and off on some amazing steamy adventure!
