Ooohhh...meloves me some steampunk!

To celebrate the release of 4 new steampunk images the new challenge at Kenny K Krafty Girlz today is METAL EMBELLISHMENTS.

Our sponsors are - Bearly Mine Designs (2 Digi sets of winner's choice)
Kenny K - 5 Digi's of the Winner's Choice

I chose Scarlett West for my card and I coloured her with Copic markers exlusively for a change. :) I did add some accents with Sakura gel and Stardust pens but those do not count as colouring. At least in my little twisted world they don't, lol
The sentiment is from Whimsy Film Strip Sentiments and is cut out with a matching die. The idea to stamp it on acetate is shamelessly nicked from Ann.
I used Fancy Ribbon Sliders and Gears Galore laser cut chipboard by Make It Crafty, giving it a good coating of metallic rub-ons.
I also tore a strip of cork board for added texture and used loads of metal flowers (LOVING them atm) and brads to make sure I totally adhere to the challenge as I've been cheating a lot lately...
Challenges:
Alphabet Challenge - 1E, JFF - M is for metal
Glitter Geeks - 2E, C10 - rock and roll
Totally Papercrafts - bling
Aud Sentiments Challenge - 2W - anything that will make someone smile/enjoy your day
Stampin' B's - JFF - use ribbon
Crafts and Me - #45 ribbon
7 Kids College Fund - 2W, 3E - texture (2nd wk)

Simon Says Stamp and Show... - Anything goes
Victorine Originals - 2W, SIO - 2nd week - Bling
Totally Papercrafts - bling
4 Crafty Chicks - bling

Thanks a million for popping by!
Hugs

I am using a hand to pick my jaw up off the ground. LOVE IT!! These are some of favorite stamps although I don't own many. Your coloring is fantastic, hope to color like that with my copic's some day. the layout is rocking and oh the bling with the metal flowers and brads are just awesome. Thank you so much for sharing your master piece with us at 4 Crafty Chicks. It truly should be put in a frame. Love it.
