Delicious Doodles DT Call

Most of you that visit my blog will probably have guessed by now that I love working with the digis from Delicious Doodles. The owner, Teri, has had a DT call out for a few weeks now. I hummed and hawed about what to make. Something that reflected me and my crafting preferences. Eclectic is a word that comes to mind. I have been called on to do girly projects and some on the dark side. The dark side is my preference but those are mostly for me. The more "normal" projects are what my non-crafty friends want as gifts. With such a diverse choice, "what to make" was not the easiest decision to make.
In the end I went for a simple card. I chose the image "Lady on Chaise" from the steampunk range. I followed the sketch over at Samual Taylors Crafts blog.

Had a bit of a problem with the flash as the day hasn't got much above dull here in Scotland, hence the slight angle. The image is coloured using promarkers with just a touch of bronze metallic paint on the "metal work". The panel behind is a washed out metal food container, coloured with alcohol inks.
The flowers are made from die cuts using a sizlets die, secured with pearl brads.
The mesh panel has also been treated with alcohol ink to give a bronzed look.
The BP is from stash that I have had for a while. The cog paper has been lightly spritzed with copper glimmer mist.

All cut out using shaped blade scissors.

The tag/charm is made from a bottle top with a small picture of cogs lifted from google images. Lightly coloured with distress inks before being sealed in with glossy accents. A hole drilled through to attach the chain, tag and charm from Duck Pond Crafts.

A few little chocolate brown pearls to finish off the corners
All mounted onto a bronzed card stock base
