Steampunk Alice...

Good morning everyone, are you all staying warm?...I hope its not as cold where you are....oooohhhhh I cant wait for spring to peep through that's if it ever does here lol...I did manage a bit of blog hopping yesterday not as much as I wanted though, I would usually on a good night visit between 50 and 60 blogs (see I'm totally addicted) but last night only managed about 20 as its like running in the sea at the minuet my connection is sssssooooo slow its like surfing in slow motion...I think a slap on the legs for BT is needed again don't you...right now onto my card for today and its for our new challenge at Colour Create challenge, this time its our fabulous Shanna's choice and she chose White or Cream, Light Brown and Dark Brown with an added option of adding hearts, I love this combo don't you and its perfect for a vintage look...I used another of the new images from Wonderland stamps for my card, I love this gorgeous image don't you, I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with this amazing double sided Graphic45 paper from the Steampunk Debuntante collection called Mechanical Mind, I love Graphic45 don't you, I would love every single one of their papers and their embellishments, do you think they would give me a job lol...the little piece with the dragonfly on is another of their papers too called Botanicabella collection/Antiquity, I finished with some gorgeous Seam Binding 1/2 inch CROQUETTE BEIGE from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and a Prima metal flower and a charm...the fabulous sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering it for the Fab 'n' Funky challenge and the Creative Craft bingo challenge (Ribbon, Brown & Flower)...right I'm off out today I need some fresh air to clear out the cobwebs...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one and if you have time pop on over to Colour Create to have a look at our amazing teams makes...oh and btw The Pretty Little Ribbon shop still has a challenge on

Oh my goodness, what a fabulous card. I love the colour combo, you always have a knack of blending coluring and papers together. A fabulous image, she reminds me of my niece so maybe I might have to go shopping later!!
Have woken up to a lovely sunny morning here, only our fourth dry day in a month! Global warming I think.
Take care.
Love Sheila x

I'll be honest Mina - I really don't get Steampunk, but, having said that, you've played this one down beautifully and I think she's brilliant! Gorgeous colour scheme and Alice is looking mighty fine! Slow broadband? We have none at moment (so I'm getting to work early, how desperate is that) Hugs Sxx

D K Crafts said...

Hi Mina. Love the colours on your card. Great image and love the little flower clock charm. Donna

P.S. I just prefer stamps to digis as I don't feel confident enough to use digis.

Sandy said...

Once again your image looks like a china doll. I wish I could come and take lessons from you. But it is a long way from my home in North Carolina to Ireland - oh woe is me!!
I think you ought to write a how to book - or have you? I love your artwork and that is exactly what it is - art!
