CMS Stempunk Blog Hop


Hi, and welcome to our first ever blog hop.  There's wonderful news!  Everyone that finishes the blog hop will win a complete set of Steampunk digis.  One lucky hopper will win a set of 12 Copic  Sketch markers in the new colors.. 

Here's the deal:  Each blog in the hop will reveal a letter.  Leave a comment on each blog and collect the letter.  After you  collect all the letters e-mail the secret word to Colleen at hurricaneheron@gmail.com. That's all there is to it.
  
My letter is "A"

You should have gotten here from "Stamping with Bekah."  Next stop on the hop is Deez Creative Design.  If you miss any blogs on the hop you can go to Making Our Mark for a complete list of sites.


I colored both pictures with Copic markers.  I wanted something a little more colorful than the traditional steampunk look.  I kept the same color scheme through both cards.  It was easier than putting the markers away and starting over.  The embellishments as well at the tickets are from Tim Holtz.

Copics:  BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18, BG72, BG75, C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, E09, E11, E13, E30, E31, E33, E34, E35, E37, R24, R39, YG61, YG63,  YR24, YR30, YR31, 100

The hop ends at midnight EST on Sunday.  Have fun and enjoy the hop.  Good luck in the drawing for the markers!

Entered the house card in the following challenges:

Rainbow Lady's  On the Street Where You Live
Sarah Hurley Take Me Home
Just Keep on Creating Anything Goes
Whimsy Inspirations Distressing
Anything Goes Time or Steampunk
