Steampunk Dress

Hi all hope you are well.
The Kiddies are back at school so i can get 
back to normal, i never seem to have as much time for 
crafting when they are at home.

Before i get onto this weeks Papertake card 
i wanted to say a big Thanks to the team over 
at Simon says stamp challenge 
I won last weeks challenge
a massive $50 voucher to spend in their
It took me all of five mins to spend it
and more (don't tell hubby). 
Can't wait for it all to arrive and have a play.

Right this week over at Papertake 
it's an 
Anything goes week
with the option of adding bling and sparkle.

Which is sponsored by the 
fab girls over at Lili of the Valley.

I have tried something a bit different this
week. I love the new stamps that Kanban 
have done in the new Steam punk range.
I saw them on C&C, ummd and ahhd
then managed to get the Vivien set off
ebay. The dresses are just fabulous.

I have also tried another new technique
colouring onto kraft card, that's a lot 
harder than you think.
I have only tried with my Polychromos pencils 
at the moment, it did 
look good, i then sprayed the dress with 
Crafters companions Spray and sparkle 
glitter and it dulled the colours down a lot.
I'll not do that again.

The papers are from Raspberry Road
Renaissance set. I got the clock and old 
advert images off the internet which i distressed
with old paper and vintage photo distress inks.
I have added Platinum glitter glue for a bit
more sparkle.

That's all for now  hope to see you at 
Thanks for looking 
take care
