Morning peeps. I hope that everyone is safe following the horrific events of this week, both at home and abroad.
It's been a fickle week with the weather here in Scotland. With heavy snow, hail, rain and sunshine all in the space of a few hours, it's hard to decide what to wear let alone plan ahead a few days.
I have not done a great deal of crafting this last fortnight due to DH and his recent stroke but I am happy to report that he is improving, if only slowly. I only wish that the extra stress didn't have such an impact on my fibro, oh well, that's life!
Any way, I have spent a bit of time in my crafty area and come up with a card for the new challenge this week over at Delicious Doodles. The theme this week is STEAMPUNK.
A simple card from me though.
I have used the new "Steampunk Mermaid" and the "Steampunk Corner", both from the Delicious Doodles shop. The layout of the card was based on the sketchy over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
The BP is from the docrafts "chronology" range, matted onto brown and blue.
The corner cogs are TH diecuts that have been heat embossed with marine frantage enamel in parts for a distressed look.
More diecut cogs in the bottom right of the mermaid, this time from the chronology range.
A copper coloured and blue rikrak ribbons with a couple of punched fleur de lis. Some pearls to finish.
Get those fantasy, time pieces, cogs and metallic bits together and make a steampunk themed project. Then come and link it into the challenge blog so that we can ooohhhh and arrrrrrrrr over it.
