We are kindly sponsored for this challenge by The Stampman (and Lady of course!) who are ofering the winner a £10 voucher for their store, you can spend this online, or if you're lucky enough to see them at a show! They have a ton of items in store, enough to tickle any crafty taste bud.
So, onto my interpretation of the theme:
I have to confess I struggled with this theme, the whole Steampunk imagery is not my thing and so I decided to take one of the elements of Steampunk - the cog/gear and put a girlie pink twist on it! I took inspiration from a sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches, masked a cross shape on the base card and stamped a cog in first, second and third generation stamping to cover the unmasked area. I die cut a butterfly and embossed using a cog embossing folder, this was inked over in the same pink as the stamped background. A simple sentiment and metal cogs completed this clean and simple card.....another challenge for me!!
Please take a look at the Challenge blog and admire the work of my fellow team-mates.
That's all for now, I'll be back soon x
