Step aside Barbie

Now did I intrigue you with the title of this blog post?!?  That was done on purpose lol.  I have been wanting to play with the wonderful freebie offered by Sassy Studio over on Crafting Planet for the progressive challenge.  And this time the image is the very sexy Steampunk Amelia.  I thought this really went perfectly with a sentiment that I had from Create with TLC.

I really really went all out for this card.  The paper is from Steampunk Botanica by Recollections.  I used my Tim Holtz dies for the border and the gears and then used some Heidi swapp bronzer spray on the cardboard.  I added a ribbon and some charm (key and clock) from my stash.  The digi and sentiment were cut using my Curved rectangles from Spellbinders.  I also added some prima bolts.  The card is really really really heavy... so not sure how this will be sent lol

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics and the wonderful sentiment from Create with TLC to which I added some vintage photo distress ink.
I'm really happy with my result ;o)  Hope you like it as well.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Sassy studio designs - Progressive challenge
  2. Corrosive challenges - Steampunk
  3. Stuck on u sketches - Border die cut ( used my Tim Holtz gear border ;o) )
  4. Happy campers - Use a stamp (digi or rubber)
  5. My heartpieces digital stamp challenge - Use a piece of metal (I used a few here)
  6. Sarah hurley challenges - Texture/dimension (there's lots on this card)
  7. Crafting by designs - Mixed media challenge
  8. Scrap-creations - Girls just want to have fun
And that's it for me now ;o)  Hope you have enjoyed my latest creations.  It was so much fun to just create for the fun of it without deadlines... well almost since it's a progressive challenge... there really is a deadline... but since I saw the digi the ideas kept popping up in my mind lol  Thank you so much to my followers for being there!!!  Only 8 more until the next giveaway... wonder if that will be before Christmas hee hee hee
