Monthly Sketch

Hello there fellow paper crafters

Well it's time again for the weekly challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges and this week its the monthly sketch challenge.

Before I show you the sketch and my creation I would like to say that Donna has a Bank holiday sale happening.

So now onto this week's challenge, it is a sketch and as I've said before I just love a sketch challenge, if you are pushed for time it makes life sooooooooooo much easier.

Silly me had already created my card for the new Steampunk Fantasy papers and then realised I hadn't looked at what the challenge was going to be. Looked and found it was a sketch and my card was close but not close enough to use, so I've put it aside for one the next up coming challenges.

I've had a lot of fun using the new Steampunk Fantasy 1 & 2 papers and they are absolutely awesome, I love how you can make pretty things and metal/mechanical things all work together.

So onto my card

I found this image while trolling the internet for some STEAMPUNK digital stamps to use as I didn't have any in my stash. (always a good excuse to get some new stamps) I thought she was perfect for steampunk and appropriately called STEAMPUNK FAIRY, I found her at Fairy Ink where they a great choice of stamps.
Here is the sketch to be used

Here as some additional photo's of this card.
The products I have used are
Bearly Mine Designs - Steampunk Fantasy 2 pp's
Bazzill cs
WOC & I Am Roses flowers
Tim Holtz metal cogs
Marianne Designs die & stamp
Spellbinder Dies
Diamonte gems
Unfortunately I haven't been keeping a record of the copics I'm using as I've been putting them away straight away so I can keep creating. I promise I will do better and either taking a photo of the ones I've used or at least writing the colours down.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges.
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Vintage Stamping Challenges - Things with Wings
Stamping Sensations - Wings and Things with a touch of Vintage
So that's it for me tonight, fingers are getting really cold as the temp & wind has been quiet cold today.
