Steampunk Fun

Wow! I can't believe it's been almost two weeks since my last card post. How sad:(  But, it's Sunday and that means another challenge over on the Kenny K blog. Seeing as it's Team A's turn to inspire for this challenge, I have a card to share! If you haven't guessed by my post title the challenge is 

Our sponsors this week are

Kenny K

with a rubber stamp for the winner

and Marianne Designs
with an awesome prize package

And here is my card using the sassy Jayne Jetpack:
I used the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante papers for my color inspiration even though all I used of the paper is the postage stamp girl image I tucke dinto a Tim Holtz pin. I have very few papers as I was late getting in on the Graphic 45 obsession, so I am hoarding the few I have and constantly looking for more. No luck locally or online so far:( Any suggestions welcome!

 I used my Silhouette to make all the fun gears, which I then frantaged and also used some homemade copper and gold embossing powder. I made the flower using blooms from Wild Orchid Crafts that I colored with the same Copic colors that I colored the image,then stacked and shaped. I also frantage'd the flower in antique gold, as well as the Tim Holtz gear in the center. The brown bling flourish is Kaiserkraft. I am a little disappointed with the DCWV paper I used, as it doesn't look as nice in the photo as it does IRL. Should've broke down and used the G45 papers! Lastly, I stenciled some gears around the image using Vintage Photo and Frantage'd some more!

I hope you all like my efforts and join in on this super fun challenge! Don't forget to hop on over to see what the rest of the Krafty Krew have created for you. I am, again, blown away with there talent!
