Simply Steampunk Metal challenge


It's the first Friday of the Month and that means another fab challenge at Simply Steampunk.  This time we want to see METAL on your project.  The team is showcasing the beautiful new Zodiac Steampunks drawn by the uber talented Abigail Larson, available at SBS. I've made an easel card using the gorgeous Aquarius.


Although these images respresent the signs of the Zodiac, they are not overly literal and lend themselves to many applications.  And because they are digis, they resize easily and can be cropped, as I did here, to give a different affect.


I certainly didn't have any trouble finding metal, did I?  The raindrops  and sentiment are from Colorbok and the fantasy flowers are paperclips I bought at Starbucks eons ago to which I've added some Primas and pearls to soften them up.  No gears this time for me, just delicate feminine beauty.  My DT sisters have done an outstanding job yet again, so be sure to visit Simply Steampunk and give them some love.  We're excited to see your Steampunk projects incorporating some metal and although we welcome anything that fits our challenge, please remember that only those featuring an SBS Steampunk image is eligible for a prize or badge.

I'm also entering this in the C.R.A.F.T. Monochromatic Challenge, the Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge, Lady Anne's Monochrome challenge, 613 Avenue Create anything Goes, the Crafter's Cafe Anything Goes and Tammy's Scrappin' Corner Use a Digi.

  4. I love how you integrated the metal into your card. Usually tends to be a masculine trait - but this looks soft and feminine! Thanks for playing along at the Crafter's Cafe Challenge & good luck!
