Steampunked

Ever since Graphic 45 came out with their Steampunk Debutante Line last year, I've been CRAZY for the whole Steampunk theme, and STOCKED up on everything steampunk I could get my hands on.... that includes the AWESOME Victorian Steampunk Lilith from Tickled Pink Stamps you see here! AND NOW I see that there is a DT Call over at Tickled Pink Stamps, so isn't this just the perfect time to pull out all my new favies (and old favies) and give it a go!!!

Seen here are a couple of merged stamps and some word art.  The scroll is one of my favorite stamps from Make It Crafty.  I actually used this scroll for a candle that I personalized with my sister and her husband's wedding date.  To see that project, click HERE.  I popped Lilith on top and added some word art.  I thought about just making it say "REWARD", but adding the "Wanted Dead or Alive" kind of gave me a chuckle so I went with that.... especially since I added the "Missing You" sentiment.  You all know my wicked sick sense of humor!  LOL!  So, OF COURSE, I used my beloved Copic markers to color this:  BG10, BG78, C0, C4, E00, E21, E23, E25, E31, E37, E39, E49, R20, R59, Y000, Y18 and YR14.  I also used the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante Dies and the Chatterbox Easy Brad Maker set to create the metal embellishments at the top (the Epoxy stickers that are included in the set really make these hand made embellishments ROCK!).  I also cut out a butterfly from the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante Time Flies paper and folded up the wings to make it look fluttery.  I used one of the gear dies from Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante line and added a Tim Holtz Idea-ology gear to make it pop.  I used a punch from EK Success and Bo Bunny's Gabrielle Flight paper for the backing.... this paper is also VERY PRETTY, much like the Graphic 45 paper!!!!  My sentiment is from a generic "dial-a-sentiment" stamp that I got at a garage sale.  That thing has come in so handy and I'm told that 7 Gypsies also has a line of "dial-a-sentiment" stamps if you wanna check it out.  It's nice to carry 12 sentiments with you anywhere in a single stamp... very Feng Shui for an avid paper crafter!!! :)
Here's the final shot... check out how dimensional this one is.... SOOOO FUN!!!



Ok folks!  That's it!  Swing by Tickled Pink's blog and check out all the deets for this DT Call!!!
