Day 3 of Creepmas Blog hop with RSD

Hi and welcome to the third day of the first annual Creepmas Blog Hop with Rick St Dennis and his wonderful EDT ladies - we will be hopping for 13 days starting Saturday Dec 1, 2012 with new projects and new images every day for 13 days. Don't forget the daily contest - somewhere in the blog hop there is a new image that just rolled out that day when you find it post on that blog and then rush back here and post what the image is and where you found the new image - you must be first on BOTH blogs to post in order to win the image - you will also win the new image from Rick's blog - yes there are 2 images per day being rolled out. The blog roll can be seen over on the left, starting with Rick's "Airless Chambers" blog and ending with Nataliya's.

That's the copy paste bit, lol.

Another card from me today - and we're having a Steam Punk day here in the Cubbyhole.
With none other than Mr Frostinator.
Quite hard to keep the glare out of this metallic card stock and trimmings.
The copper was stamped with some cog stamps before the addition of some pewter embossed card. Plenty of rub on metallic wax to highlight the joints and rivets.Some fusible fibres to simulate all the wiring inside our robotic snowman. All other "bits" from stash.
as you can see, Frostinator has been using his broom on the brushed gold here - and this is toned down with wax as well!
Coloured with promarkers. This is where I miss day light. Even day light bulbs seem to drain out colour in photos :(
Now being a sensible guy, Frostinator is aware that spare parts might not be readily available when using that broomstick to fly off to foreign parts, so he has packed his own supplies.
I couldn't think of a good sentiment at this time - but then I normally leave space for one and personalise the card when giving.

If you're into Halloween and the creepier side of things be sure to follow the CREEPMAS hop which has all sorts of weird stuff including decor, stories and general insanity...its fun... see left hand side bar logo for link

 There's also a Smeared and Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas hop going on - The blog roll for that is also on my side bar.
