Crafting When We Can

Good morning, y'all, and Happy Mother's Day!!  Big hugs to all the hard-working mamas out are appreciated!

Today, Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring the newest challenge over at Crafting When We Can.  Not only that, but I got to be one of the guest designers!!  Woot, woot!  I'm so thrilled.  It's my favorite kind of challenge, my favorite style.  Have you guessed the challenge yet?  It's.....

Steampunk Pics

Oooh, I just love steampunk, don't you?!  Not quite sure what it is?  It's basically a cross between the Victorian era and the Industrial Revolution, with a smattering of science fiction.  In many steampunk tales, it is a post-apocalyptic world.  Want more information?  Check out these three sites here, here and here.  Think Victorian clothing with lots of machine parts, flying objects, and metal.  =D

Here's what I created:

I used the gorgeous Steampunk Victoria from Sassy Studio Designs.  Isn't she a hoot?  She is one of my favorite images.  =D  She was colored with Copics.  Her background paper uses a stamp from Technique Tuesday's Get in Gear set.   The paper was then embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and edged with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.  The clock paper is from Bo Bunny's Timepiece collection.  The gears were cut out of metallic paper with my brand new Spellbinders Shapeability die.  The word charm, metal gear and arrows are from Tim Holtz.  The steampunk bird photo corners are from Jolee's Boutique.

Anxious to give it a shot for yourself?  Want some more inspiration?  Head over to the Crafting When We Can challenge blog to see the awesome makes by their DT.  Need even MORE inspiration?  Head on over to the Sassy Studio Designs blog so see the samples from the Sassy Sisters.  I really do hope you will join in this challenge!  I would love to see what you come up with.  =D
