Monochromatic at Simply Steampunk
Our new Monochomatic Challenge begins TODAY at Simply Steampunk. The team is showcasing the second set of Steampunk Zodiacs and I have the pleasure of working with Gemini. This fun girly image screamed PINK to me and so it is. The color scheme seemed fitting as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so I'm thinking this may be the very first Steampunk Breast Cancer Awareness wall hanging in the world. (Didn't have an appropriate dowel to hang this from so it's lying flat at the moment.)
I've colored the twins with Copics using mainly R81-89. They were printed right on the Printed DP from the Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby Stack and cut with Nesties Labels Twenty Five.
The dress form was cut from white card stock on my Cricut from the French Manor Cartridge and colored with Copics as well. The wings are from the Cuttlebug Vintage Collage Emboss Plus folder and the (PINK!) gears with a Tim Holtx for Sizzix Die from textured metallic card stock. The Pink Awareness Ribbon and heart are from JoAnn's.
It was fun trying to incorporate girly Steampunk details. The final one, another gear topped with a flower and "hope" done in wire with beads (also from JoAnn's a bazillion years ago). My teamies have done a wonderful job with the Monochromatic theme (ours was harder than most since were were told that skin and hair must also be monochromatic) so be sure to stop by Simply Steampunk and be inspired.
I'm also entering this in the Link Up for Pink 3rd Annual BCA Linky Party, As You Like It Favorite Not a Card Project and Why(Wall hangings because they give you more room to play and it's fun changeable decor), DLArt Thankful Thursday BCA Linky Party, Crafty Creations Winged Things, The Paper Shelter Shabby Chic, Whimsy Stamps Shabby Chic/Vintage, Inky Chicks 2 Different Die Cuts, and Shopping Our Stash Pink or BCA.
