Another New Challenge

This will be the second new challenge that I have entered this week. My friend Sheila has a new blog Craft Creations  and has decided to start a challenge, the first one is sponsored by Chameleon Card Craft. She has provided a sketch for people to follow, the topic is up to you.

For my entry I've gone for Steampunk, and used the new Chocolate Baroque Steampunk Travel set that was released at the beginning of June. First I made a 6x6 cream card base out of A4 card, then made a brown mat, the final mat was cream, which I blended Tea Dye distress ink over, then over stamped with the small cogs from the Steampunk dreams set from Creative Expressions. I then took the mobile phone words and overstamped this onto the background. I added a ribbon across the middle, this I scrunched up as I put it along some double sided tape. The cogs were cut using a spellbinders die set, with some card candi added to the centres. For my main image I used the mobile phone from the steampunk travel set, this made me giggle when I first saw it. I stamped it onto some water colour paper with Walnut Stain distress ink, then with a water brush dragged some of the colour out to colour the image. I then very lightly blended some of the walnut stain around the edge of the image before popping it onto the card.

Thank you for taking the time to look, and please pop over to Sheila's blog and take a look.
