Halloweenie 5 for Simply Steampunk
This little guy just melts my heart. He's Halloweenie 5 from the Classic Collection Steampunks, my second showcase piece for Simply Steampunk. The buggy Dp is from an MS 8x8 stack and I've used Glossy Accents on the giant beetle. The web frame is also MS from a Punch Around the Page set and if you look closely, there's a bejeweled spider climbing up the flourish (read piece of scrap left on my messy table from????) WooHoo, I recycled! It was actually the sentiment (done with my Dymo) that made me go in this direction. Didn't want anything too sissy and what little boy doesn't love bugs?
He's colored with Copics and I've fussy cut the frame and popped it for dimension. His sweet, shy expression is what really gets to me. Wouldn't he make a fab Father's Day or birthday card for your fave little man? Or perhaps an "I'm sorry" or "Missing you" card? In any case, he's hard to resist. Please visit Simply Steampunk for more inspiration throughout the month and don't forget our Frame It Challenge runs through June 6th. I'm entering this in the Left of Center Challenge (LOC theme), Shopping Our Stash Tool Shed Challenge (MS punch around the page set), the Artistic Inspirations Cards for Men Challenge, and That Craft Place Makes for Men Challenge.
