Simply Steampunk Showcase #2; Graveyard Gretchen
It's my pleasure today to showcase another of the fab Lady Killers available at Simply B Stamps. (P.S. they're a bargain at only $2.50 each!) Meet Graveyard Gretchen. She certainly seems involved in the final resting place for her Beloved. I had a great time making a side step card with a whole graveyard scene. The rows of stones are an On the Edge Die from Tim Holtz which I've colored with Copics, the moon, a Nesties Circle, and the grass, actually an icicle border punch from MS. the sentiment is computer generated on a Cuttlebug Emboss plus Fanciful label which I've inked with Distress.
Gretchen is colored with Copic, fussy cut and popped (what else is new? LOL). Hmmm...you'd think she'd be a bit more distraught.
Instructions for the side step card were found HERE on Splitcoast Stampers. I've flipped the cuts so that the tall piece is on the other side, though. Don't forget we have almost daily inspiration in the Simply Steampunk Challenge Blog and our current Embossing Folders Challenge runs through August 1st. Hope to see you there.
I'm also entering this in the Left of Center Challenge (using the LOC theme, although there are stripes on her dress), TTRCD July 16-22 and A Little Bit Crafty Die-ing for It, Dream Valley Fancy Folds and Crafting with Dragonflies Unusual Folds.
