Embracing Steampunk with Delicious Doodles

It's Friday so that means it's time for a new challenge over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge blog, and this week's theme will be very popular;  Steampunk.

We want to see your interpretation of Steampunk, a little bit vintage, a few cogs and wheels, clockwork elements, etc...

Here's my project featuring the gorgeous Steampunk Mermaid image;
I had so much fun colouring this gorgeous mermaid.  I used a mix of Letraset Tria and Promarkers, with the addition of a little white gel pen for highlights.   I created a cloudy background with my pens before adding some Picked Raspberry Distress Paint through a Steampunk Mask and some punchinella.  I left this to dry , trimmed down my image and added some Wild Honey Distress Ink. To embellish it slightly I added a few black staples.

To create my punched edges I used my Swiss Cheese EK Success Punches, before layering my image onto some white card.  Using cerise card I created my backing paper, using the same punches.  I layered this onto white card then orange card before adding to an 8" x 8" white card blank.  Finally I added my image.

I kept this card very simple, as I wanted the main focus to be the beautiful image from Delicious Doodles.  I love the finished card, so bright and fun, perfect for anyone.
