Fussy and Fancy Steampunk Challenge!

Hello my crafty friends!
It's time for a new challenge at
Our challenge for the next fortnight is
I chose to create with
Kenny K
She is colored with copic markers
I have never created a Steampunk card before, so
when I heard this challenge, I felt out of my comfort zone.
However, I made a trip to the store and bought some
Tim Holtz gears, printed cork, plain cork and some
Recollections DP and before I knew it, I was creating and
adding lovely crocheted flowers that my mother made for me
with added buttons and brads and a
K&Company key
Jolee's boutique watch
Little yellow Bicycle cork stick pin
and I finished it off by tucking a
Recollections newspaper embellishment
among the flowers.
I hope that you like her!
You are in for a huge treat when you pop
on over to our
to see the Steampunk themed creations made
by my very talented DT Friends.
I hope that you can join us for this
fun challenge!
On a personal note, As most of you know,
Google reader lists will be cancelled
as of July 1st.
I am in the process of trying to switch over to
 I hope that you can follow me there

Fresh Brewed Designs DT feature card

It's Wednesday!  I can almost see the
weekend peeking around the corner
from down the street!
I have a card to share with you
today that I created using
Fresh Brewed Designs

I love this pretty little mermaid that Heather created
with the big eyes along with an adorable beach scene.
The month long prize challenge at
Mermaids, Fairies or Fantasy with the option of a box card technique, and this magical little mermaid
was perfect for the pretty coral, pinks and blues
that I was hoping to work with, along with
my mothers pretty crocheted flowers!
I was going for a Shabby Chic look, which isn't
my typical style and
I was having a blast as I worked on roughing up
the edges and added some ink and paint!
I wish I had more time to craft.  I just love to play!
I colored her with copic markers and added
some liquid pearls.
I used Stampin Up cardstock, DP, pearls,
and sentiment.
My mother crocheted the pretty flowers and
the centers are from The Girls Paperie
I added a tiny spool that I wrapped some 
Stampin Up gold and white thread onto.
The corner embellishement is from Wild Orchid Crafts
I painted it white along with some corrugated cardboard
that you can see peeking out of the left corner.
The lace, buttons, butterfly, shell and baubles are from my stash.
I finished my card off with some white paint and sugar glitter.

I hope that you can join in on the fun!
There are lots of fun rubber stamps
and digi images to choose

You can find my card along with lots of
lovely creations made by my DT friends

option of making a Box Card!
Here is my DT Box Card using
Fresh Brewed Designs
This adorable little fairy image is colored with copics.
The cardstock and DP is Stampin Up and the lace is from my stash.
I added some Stampin Up mica flakes and rhinestones
for some added sparkle!
I also used the Stampin Up Dots embossing folder
Die's used are sizzix scalloped ovals

This is what my card looks like when I remove the
paper belly band

and here is the inside of my box card using

I am so very happy that Heather thought of
the Box Card challenge!
I had so much fun creating this fun project!
LOL!  I started making it on Sunday and finally
finished it tonight!
(Tuesday evening)
Not that I didn't want to finish it right away,
It's just that with my crazy life here, I had one
unexpected interuption after another!
I think it worked out well for me though,
because I had more time to plan what I wanted to do!
