Whoopsi Daisy Sketch Challenge

Time for another challenge over at Whoopsi Daisy and this week we have a great sketch from Sande one of our Daisy Divas.

Please remember that to be in with a chance of winning you must use a WD image and there is a freebie here for you to use.

This week I have used this fab image from sheet 339, she just cried out to be steampunk-ed (is there such a word - well there is now!)

The teal card was stamped with versamark using a Paperartsy stamp from the clocks stamp plate and embossed with clear embossing powder, the cream backing papers are from Funky Hands Steamfunk set, all were distressed with a craft knife.

A piece of teal card was dry embossed with a cogs embossing folder which had been inked with versamark and  heat embossed with clear embossing powder, teal ribbon was tied around the card and finished with a knot. The image was coloured with promarkers, die cut 'out of the box' and matted onto teal card and mounted onto the embossed card. 

Die cut cogs were painted with teal paint onto which were attached brass cogs and topped with pearls were placed down the side of the image. A safety pin with a key was pinned to the ribbon knot. The metal corners and butterfly were coloured with espresso alcohol ink to distress them, the butterfly was adhered to the play ticket in a TH pin.

I really enjoyed putting this together as it was challenging to use a WD image and do something a little bit different with it.

I am entering this in the following challenges: Sundae Bar - cream, blue, distressing and pearls. The letter "B" - blue, butterfly, brown Recipe 3 embellishments, 2 papers and 1 image 3 embellishments, 2 papers and 1 image
