Steam Punk - Telsa

Good morning everyone.  How are you all? January is almost over - I do think January is always a long month.  I have enjoyed the recent cold spell I have to admit although I could have done with it being longer.  Hate the rain.

Today we start a new challenge at Crafty Girls Creations.

Challenge 13 theme is the usual 'Always Anything Goes'

Our sponsor is NikkiBurnette

I am using an image from our sponsor called Steam Punk - Telsa.

I don't normally do steam punk but this little lady took my eye. She definitely has attitude.

After printing her out I coloured her in using my copic sketch markers as follows: -
hair = C3 | C5 | C7
skin = E000 | E00 | E01
dress etc = B23 | B26 | B29
accessories = R17 | R27 | 100

I then fussy cut her out using my BSC with a 1mm border on the 'direct to cut' facility. I then cut a 2mm black mat and a 4mm red mat. (oh the joys of my BSC).

I have used a white C5 base card followed by a white mat which I have embossed using a key embossing folder - a couture one I think.  I have distressed around the edges a little and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz blueprint sketch distress ink.

I then cut a piece of red card and distressed around the edges followed by a piece of white card which I have inked up using a cog mask and blueprint sketch distress ink topped with my topper.

A piece of blue ribbon and some red tonic nuvo pearl drops finishes off my design.
