Time Flies...even outside your comfort zone!

Hi Everyone

Today I am guest designer over at The Bugbytes.  I have one of my very favorite cards to show you, that I actually made sometime ago - it's a Steampunk.  I know I am a little 'late to the game' but I really love Steampunk - took me a while to get used to as it is a little 'out of my comfort zone', but it is so much fun.

The image I have used is from Aurella Art check out her store, she has some of the most beautiful images. This one is called 'Steampunk Telsa' - I found her quite a challenge to colour (this was my third attempt!)

The image is coloured with ProMarkers, the background paper is from 7Gypsies and the wings and sentiment are made using my Cameo.

Of course I had to finish this one off with an envelope.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
  1. Paperminutes - Vintage Women
  2. Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
  3. Crafty Cardmakers - Winged Things (hope the flying clock counts!)
  4. Creative Cutting Challenge - Anything Goes (die cut frame and winged clock)
  5. Parade Your Crafts - Birthdays
  6. Crafting Musketeers - Vintage

Thanks Pam for having me over to visit your blog.  I hope I have inspired you to take a step outside your comfort zone - you may be surprised at what you find.
