Scrapy Land Challenge- Steampunk!

Hello All!

Today starts a new challenge at Scrapy Land Challenge blog: Steampunk.  Admittedly, I had never made anything Steampunk before.  It is not that I do not like the style because I think Steampunk is very cool- I just never thought I could do it.  Alas, that is the fun thing about challenges: doing something new.
The new stamp from Quietfire is one of my new favorites...looks great on a Steampunk card! 
First time really using the Inka-Gold.  I may have to purchase a few more colors.  :)
Overall, it was a neat experience making a Steampunk project.  I may have to do this again!

Thanks for stopping by!  I look forward to seeing your Steampunk project at Scrapy Land!
Big Crafty Hugs,
Kathy Jo
