I'm really loving the versatility of the Steampunk Romance Digis drawn by the fabulous Abigail Larson for SBS. Although originally release for Valentine's Day, I've done another Steampunk Christmas card using the lovely Romance Emma. I've framed Emma using the Cuttlebug Brocade Window Embossing Plus folder, using more of the K&Co Christmas Cheer stack, then used Rub'n Buff to gild it.
Emma was enlarged in my Printmaster Platinum program to fit the window, colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped. I've used gold peelies around the frame and for the ornate corners as well.
It wouldn't be Steampunk without some gears, these cut with Spellbinders dies and again rubbed with some gold. The metal accents are all Tim Holtz.
The bottom little Christmas card embellie is another from K&Co. (Told you I had a wad of this stuff!) More gears, etc. Those Victorian times were nothing, if not ornate, LOL. Please stop by Simply Steampunk to see more images showcased by my teamies. We have posts going on throughout the month. and please come play along with our December "Anything Steampunk" challenge which runs through January 2nd. You needn't use a Simply B Stamp to play, but you just might win some.
Here is the photo inspiration for Addicted to Stamps and More where I'm entering my card. The gold elements really inspired me, as well as the elegant vintage feel.
I'm also entering this in the Cuttlebug Mania ATG Christmas Challenge, the Outlawz Monday Greeting Card "That's Entertainment" challenge (inspired by "Little Women"), and Twisted Tuesday "Cutting Corners" (Fussy Cutting with a Twist of Fancy Corners) Challenge,
