Steampunk with a bit of burlesque...


To be fair, I don't really understand Steampunk, but I do love the Steampunk Burlesque stamps by KennyK and so when JT alerted me to the fact that the KennyK challenge for the next fortnight (#152) was Steampunk...I felt it would be rude not to enter.

JT has already made her entry, which I love and she's a bit meh! about it, I love it the colours and the use of Jettpack Jayne.

The main photo today is of my card and the image is Helga Frost by KennyK, I think she is a bit Vampiric, so coloured her skin tone in Ivory - way paler than I would normally use, but she now looks very icy - love it.

I matched all the colours of her outfit to the cog paper (which was a freebie and is the last piece of it). Great to have such a broad range of Promarkers to work with, means I can match colours on the stamsps to the papers I am using. I felt it was lacking something and so added the pinstripe Candi's here and there for a bit of interest.

I am not normally a fan of gold peel-offs, but I think they work well here. I added some glitter glue here and there - here are some close-ups so you can see the detail better.

I am SO over the moon with my card, it came out even better than I had visualised and it is rare for me to be so happy with a challenge card.

Because of this I decided that I would enter it into another the I love Promarkers challenge too, which also happens to be Steampunk.

Hooray!
