CRAFTING WHEN WE CAN CHALLENGES

2 in a row, what's happening???

As it says in the title I have managed to make 2 posts in a row.  I am not making the same mistake I made last week when I thought I had posted and didn't so I am scheduling this post and hopefully it will remind me to enter my card into the challenge over at Paper Pad Challenge.

This week Pascale has given us some really nice Steampunk pages to use.  I used my CraftArtist program to lay one page onto the other and then play with the transparency button so you could see both papers.  I then used the cutout studio to take the background from a Dustin Pike image called Steamdudley, then skewed a clockface from a digikit called 'kicking the leaves'.  I used promarker and copics to colour in Dudley and black soot DI to colour the base card and edge of the mat.  I highlighted the edge of the mat and clockface with a Sakura calligraphy pen and then rubbed it with my inky finger (I always have inky fingers after using any type of ink) to dull down the gold.  Here is the result I just need to think of something witty to put as a sentiment, any input will be gratefully received.
