Steampunker (CFAS #7)

Good afternoon everyone! 
It's Wednesday and it's time for our new fortnightly challenge at Crafting For All Seasons. Our challenge this fortnight is......
We are very lucky to be sponsored by TIDDLY INKS and they are giving a $10 gift certificate to the lucky winner! Here is my card......

I decided to be brave this time and go for Steampunker as it's somewhat out of my comfort zone. I have to say though, that I thoroughly enjoyed making this card, and I used some Paper Cellar papers that have just sat around not doing much for a while! I coloured her with Promarkers, and made a tag out of one sheet of the Paper Cellar paper, which I then attached my cut out image to. The background is from the same paperstack and I attached it at an angle to create a different effect. I sanded the edges of both papers for a vintage look. I finished with the lace, flowers and gems. 
I am really happy with how this turned out, and you know what? I already sold it! To a lovely little, old lady on my market on Saturday! Who'd have thought it eh?!
Oh and talking of the market, and the 'big' order I had.......the ladies who placed the order were totally over the moon with the cards I made for them! And they even bought 3 more from me! :D

Anyway, get on over to CFAS and show us your fab creations! :)
