Steampunk

     I have been having such a wonderful time coloring the past few days.  We have fall break off of school.  It's only a couple days, but it gives me time to play.  Especially since my husband has to work.  I have gotten to experiment with a few styles that I don't normally do and it's been so much fun!















    This image is by Krista Smith and is called "Janessa."  I recently found Krista's work on Etsy and she is one of my favorites now.  I don't have many images yet, but hope to collect more.  I have always liked the steampunk look.  This doesn't have quite the grunge look that steampunk usually has. 



    Of course, I colored this with Copics  The embellishments are from Tim Holtz. I've been holding onto them for about a year waiting to do this type of card.

    Copics: B23, B24, B26, C0, C1, C3, E00, E01, E02, E08, G14, G20, G21, G24, R11, R22, R24, R27, YR12, YR14

    I am entering this in the following challemges:
    I Brake for Challenges Girl Power
    Use It Tuesday Metal.
    Make It Monday Anything Goes
    I Did It Creations Anything Goes
    One Stitch at a Time Anything Goes

    Although this is not your usual style (or mine) I love this card! I don't know if it's because you colored it so perfectly or the layout with all the metal is so great! Whatever the reason, it's really adorable!
