Steampunk

I have not been around much the last 2 weeks and I am so sorry but work has been absolutely manic and at the same time I am try to get the kitchen
 re decorated before Christmas!!   I am hoping that things settle down a bit at work but I am still going to be ultra busy until Wednesday at least, and then hopefully the pre Christmas wind down should kick in  ( i can hope at least )............

Any way onto the card. I have taken the plunge and bought several of the beautiful Saturated Canary Digi's by Krista Smith.  This beautiful Digi is called Sprocket the steampunk aviator.


I was so pleased when these Digi's arrive in my mail box. I have been aching to buy some after seeing the wonderful Creations being made with them in blog land..
 Isn't she cute?


I have coloured my image using Copics.
E37,E35,E33,E31,W7,W5,W3,W1,E77,E74,E71,E70,
E11,E21,E00.E000.R20,R36,R34,R32,R30.
Because sometimes my Digi images smear when coloured I left it overnight to dry and then heat set it.
It seems to have worked a treat.



The pretty papers are from a stacked by Tilda called kitchen garden. i wasn't sure if they were going to work out but once I had grunged them up a bit with some Tim Holtz distress ink it all seemed to come together.


The clock die is a Tim Holtz by Sizzix's and the flower was made from a Marianne die. I ran my flower pieces under the tap scrunched them up and then left them to dry for a bit. While they were still damp I unrolled them and inked the edges. I also used a section of a large Prima invoice stamp for my background.


 Challenges I would like to enter


I hope you like and I will try to be a better blogger in future
