Sweet Pea Stamps Project No. 2

Happy Monday!

Below is my second project as a guest designer at Sweet Pea Stamps for August. This has been so much fun! Go check out the store. The Sweet Pea Stamps designers (one talented group of artists, if I say so myself) have their own blog, and In a Sweet Pea Dream is the challenge blog. Go check them out, some wonderful eye candy and prizes.

My project is Teresa Sherman’s Steampunk Fairy. I have never attempted to create anything with a Steampunk theme, but I must say I surprised myself, so muchso, that I plan on experimenting with Steampunk and a little Goth.
I colored her, not with Copics, but my PrismaColor pencils. Somehow she looked right for that feeling that these pencils create. For my background paper I used some Steampunk digital paper created by Teresa Sherman, artist of the Steampunk Fairy. Her online store, Delicious Doodles, has most of her images and several digital papers. The cardstock is all from Stampin’ Up. I found some of the most wonderful dies at Cheery Lynn Designs. This store may be old news to some of you, but it is so new to me. The die I used to try and get some more metal objects is the Italian Flourish Doily. I also used Tea Dye and Black Soot Distress Inks for the border around the image.

Challenges that I am entering are:
Dream Valley Challenges – Distressing
One Stitch at a Time – Anything goes
Mark’s Finest Papers – Distressing
(Note: For all my challenges I use Feline Playful's site.)

That’s it for today. Next Monday will be my No. 3 project and my last one in August for Sweet Pea Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate contacting me.

Aletha, I have to say, your attempt at Steampunk is absolutely gorgeous. What a beautiful card (please go and comment on the challenge blog and have someone add #3 & MAG behind your entry) I would hate to see you miss the opportunity to win the contest. Thank you so much for sharing such a gorgeous creation with us girls at OSAAT - good luck
