We've gone all Steampunk!

Hello there,

Over on That Craft Place Blog we've gone all Steampunk for the challenge this fortnight and if you check out the Etsy Store you'll be able to find some absolutely awesome digital images to choose from to join in.

Here's my DT inspiration using Set Sail Steampunk Style

Steampunk always scares me just a little bit, I just love the style but I am in awe of some just inspiring Mixed Media artists out there that just blow me away with their creations that I feel a little tentative about approaching it myself!  So this took a week of thinking to put together as a result lol

Here's what I used to make it:
Style: Tent Fold A6
Theme: Steampunk
Image: Set Sail Steampunk Style, That Craft Place Etsy Store
Spectrum Noir Markers:
Skin: TN3, FS9, 6, 4, 2
Hair: True Black, BGR2, 3, 5
Clothes & bits: CG2, IG4, 6, DR6
Background: GB2, 4, 6
160gsm Super Smooth Card, That Craft Place
Graphic 45 8x8 Typography Pad, That Craft Place
MDF shapes by That Craft Place
DecoArt Crackle Paint & gloss medium, That Craft Place
Crafter’s Companion Matt Black card

Tim Holtz Accessories Writing Desk Bigz die

And a few more pics:

I just love how the MDF and the ink bottle turned out, so I can see more of this type of embellishment coming your way lol

Thank you so much for stopping by and please pop by the That Craft Place Challenge Blog because trust me, my uber talented teamies on the design team have some real corkers for you this time :D
