Simply Steampunk Layers Challenge

It's a new challenge day at Simply Steampunk Challenges and this month we want to see layers on your project.  The DT is using the new Roberts Halloween images and I have the pleasure of showcasing the gorgeous Witchy Mrs. Roberts.

I bought a whole new line of Copic greys (N's) for her clothes since most of my C's need refilling.  Wow, I forgot how much easier it is to blend with new ones. (Even with the crap card stock I use.  LOL)  I've added some of the small Steampunk gears to the bat (Cuttlebug) and spider (Jolee's).

The card is a tent card but doesn't really show in the picture.  My base is 12"x5", instead of 8 1/2"x4 1/4" like in the tutorial and I've cut my windows in the base and 1st layer with Nesties Labels (?  Hmm... they're around here somewhere), then layered the largest Timeless Rectangle (that I cut the center out with my kraft knife) and finally my new Memory Box Spiderweb behind.  The sentiment stickers are from Authentique, the Steampunk Spells book from the Graphic 45 8x8 stack.  I've stretched a Tim Holtz Mini Rosette to fit behind the oval and added another gear.  OOOh, I just LOVE those things!

Here's a better view of the depth.  The inside scene is from a DCWV stack and I've added a spooky fence (MS punch) between.  My DT sisters have done some amazing work so be sure to check them out HERE and leave them some love.  We're thrilled with the fabulous work our participants shared in our last challenge and can't wait to see how you Layer.

I'm also entering this in the Desert Island Crafters Challenge #61 using #'s 2,3,5,7,8 and 10 (spider is glittery) and Left of Center Challenge 13 (both girly and LOC).
