Steampunk Telsa

Morning and the start of another week -hope you are all well and ready for our new challenge at Crafting From The Heart which is ATG and our sponsor is Nikki Burnette and I chose the image "Steampunk Telsa" coloured with promarkers,cardstock from Papermill Direct,chipboard key daubed with TH Brushed Pewter,clock die from marianne Craftables,the metal button was recycled from can't even remember what lol.I had actually cut a circle from the middle of the corrugated recycled packaging because I had embossed the brown card bottom layer with TH cogs EF,then ended up covering it up completely!!!After seeing Fionas card I now wish I had cut the image out and some of the embossing would have been shown lol.Steampunk is not my favourite style,bit out of my comfort zone lol but am pretty pleased how this turned out.

Hello Carol, A lovely card and image, which has been coloured beautifully. Really love the theme. Great use of corrugated cardboard, and the die cuts blend in nicely.

Beautiful image and love your coloring. Looks fab with the elements you've added over the corrugated paper. Pretty layout too! On the brusho-s, don't worry about the heavy hand...just keep playing. Use lots of water (or have the paper wet with water or sprays), sprinkle on the crystals, and watch the fun. Blowing through a straw (I use the ranger spritzer tool instead) creates lots of patterns too. You'll enjoy the Brusho-s. TFS & Hugs
