The Corrosive Challenge #181 - Steampunk

Hey there!  Okay, birthday week is over and I had a fabulous girls night away/beach day at the ocean last weekend so I am recharged (though a year older) and ready to go!  And go I did- right back into some serious crafting!  I've made four cards in as many days along with working and all my momma duties.  Today I have a new Corrosive Challenge to share with you, though!  We are super excited to welcome back one of our favorite sponsors: KennyKDownloads!  Sexy and funky and oh so fun!  Just like me.  *wink*

Our theme this fortnight is "Steampunk"!  I love this style, all vintage and modern at the same time.  There is something about it, Victorian elegance paired with gritty anachronistic retro-futuristic technology, that is just so cool!  Kenny K's Steampunk Burlesque collection is a perfect of example!  Kenny and Elena were kind enough to provide the team with several images to create with.  I actually already had one printed from the newest Steampunk release when I was a lucky gal and got to be one of their guest designers so I decided to color her up.  This is Savannah Belle.

She is colored with Copics and fussy cut.  One of the things I love about creating Steampunk cards is that I get to pile on the embellishments, especially my beloved Tim Holtz metal goodies!  Here I have used quite the assortment: Time Pieces, Gears, Game Spinners, Corners, Trinket Pins, and the Weathered Clock die, which I sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I also added a few flowers and some bling swirls.  Papers are from a new DCWV stack, Dark Romance.  A couple of Spellbinders dies were utilized as well- Sprightly Sprockets, which I recently picked up on clearance at Joann's, and Grommet Tags.  The sentiment is from the Victorian Steampunk Sentiments by the now defunct Tickled Pink Stamps.

In case you didn't know, Kenny K has their own challenge blog too!  Check out Kenny K's Krafty Krew to see all of their stunning creations!  This week their theme is Case a Design Team member.  Be sure to visit them as well as The Corrosive Challenge blog!  We are welcoming another new design team member today so you won't want to miss it!

I was up waaay past my bedtime again so I will be relaxing with the small man today.  Definitely some crafting.  Perhaps a little crafty shopping as well.  All that and a mocha iced coffee too!  I hope you're enjoying your weekend where you are!  Thanks for stopping by!
