Dream Valley - Steam Punk

Good morning everyone!  Apologies for my Dream Valley DT card being a little late.....we were in Aviemore until Friday and then went mountain biking at Glentress, Peebles, yesterday.

So, the theme for the Dream Valley challenge this fortnight is Steam Punk and it was DEFINITELY a challenge for me!  After looking up some definitions (to confirm my idea of steam punk) I decided that this paper, which has lots of pocket watches and penny farthing bikes on, would work....I could use my Cuttlebug Clockworks embossing folder......and I could make a corsetted style dress.....hmmm.

The dress is accordian folded for the skirt and the corset bodice is from my own template, built up with about 4 layers of sticky pads to raise to the same height as the skirt.  I've added a thin ribbon "belt" and bow to hide the join.  The clock is cut from some cream paper that has been embossed and inked with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.  A Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish and some pearls complete my first ever Steam Punk card.  I will add a sentiment at a later date.

We are sponsored by the fabulous:
and the lucky winner will receive a £10 voucher to spend!

I'm looking forward to seeing what you all create for our Steam Punk Challenge and remember that it can be any craft you like.

Happy crafting!
