Another steampunk make!

I didn't get a chance to complete my card in time for the new challenge over at Pixie Dust Studios this week, but there's still time for you to join in!  This week the challenge is steampunk - not my strongest style, but I came up with this...


Not a piece of metal in sight!  Still, I managed the distressing and lots of inking at least!  I love Max Takes Off from the Steampunk collection - just look at his cheeks - ya just wanna pinch them, don't cha?!!  I used papers from the Glitz Design French Kiss pad and brown and black chalk inks around the edges.  You can see more funky steampunk inspiration over at the Take the Pixie challenge blog!

Okay, that's it from me for now, enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you tomorrow with my card for Make It Monday!






I am entering my card into the following challenges:
