A little bit of Steampunk

Steampunk (sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery,) isn't something I have done a lot of.  But this month, Olga at Little Blue Button Stamps  has designed a very cute image called "Steampunk Jessica"

So of course, I had to make a Steampunk background for her.

I started by added some tinfoil to card stock.  I then put this through a Spellbinders M-bossabilties folder.  I then used a variety of mediums to colour it up.  Distress stains, Alcohol inks and finally some acrylic paint in black .  For my flower piece I cut a small doily die from Couture Creations, trimmed to fit. I added some netting and then some paper flowers.  Jessica was coloured and fussy cut and layered onto the background.  I haven't added a sentiment yet but will do so before I use the card.  I am happy with the results. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Wishing you a good week.
