This month the Simply Steampunk team is working with the second half of the beautiful Steampunk Zodiac images drawn by Abigail Larson for SBS. Today I bring you Leo. I think the fabulous images are just perfect for birthday cards so that's what I've done here. The Steampunk Digi papers are from Bearly Mine Designs.
I've colored lovely Leo with Copics, fussy cut and popped her with foam. The Zodiac references are quite subtle, which give them versatility. I'd say the tail is sort of a giveaway here, though. LOL
I enjoy adding Steampunk elements such as Tim Holtz tiny gears to the Prima flower centers as well as the die cut gears and a sort of tattered and distressed doily which are also Tim Holtz for Sizzix.
To balance the design I added 3 faux screws that I made from Card Candi by scoring the centers and wiping with Guilder's Paste. Finnally, the edges of the DP were distressed with my Zutter Distrezz It All. All month long the DT showcases the newest featured Steampunk digi set, so please visit Simply Steampunk Challenges often. There's loads of inspiration. Also remember our October Challenge, Monochromatic Colors runs through October 31st. Hope to see you there.
