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.

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.
