Getting sketchy at Creative Moments


Hi I'm back! This time with my card for the new challenge at Creative Moments . This fortnight we have a lovely sketch for you to interpret.  Here's my take on it, as you can see I followed the sketch pretty exactly (sometimes I take the easy way out, LOL!) We are sponsored by Sassy Studios and I've used this fabulous image 'Steampunk Josephine'.  I love steampunk it gives me an opportunity to use all my distress inks and get stamping! The image is coloured with copics,  the edges are embossed with copper and I sprinkled some over the image, hence the freckled thighs! She's matted onto some metallic embossed copper coloured cardstock. the background is coloured with distress inks, stencilled, stamped and randomly heat embossed with copper and gold embossing powders. I added a 'ribbon' made of a kind of plasticy stuff which I've had for ages and some wooden lazercut cogs from Hobbycutz.
Hope you like my card, there's loads of fabulous inspiration to be seen at the Creative Moments challenge blog and we'd love to see how you interpret this fabulous sketch so why not join us this fortnight!

    1. Hi again Chris! Parsnip is a little white cuddly bear, given to me by a playmate as our playground mascot. He's on sentry duty after hours :) But goodness knows what the froggy umbrella is all about - basically you don't have to be mad to join in the Playground, but it does help! There's now talk of a horse for goodness sakes! :) All imaginary of course, but sometimes I do wonder :)
