Stepping Back in Time with My Besties

Here's another Creation Using these fun My Besties.
I love steampunk so when I saw this cutie I just had to have her.

 I always start my colouring with the plan to stick with a colour theme, but as usual I always end up throwing in some colours I didn't expect.. and I'm so glad because it came out fantastic with the touches of red and blue.

I used my Silhouette Cameo and dies for most of this card and it was great fun putting this all together.

                                             The dies are
Crafty Ann - Border 15 steampunk (using brown cardstock)
Cherry Lynn Designs -B383 Owls with gears steampunk (using brown cardstock and  Viva Décor Inka gold
Silhouette files
Steampunk clock (using Elizabeth craft design Opel fire gemstone shimmer sheet, white iris shimmer sheet and black cardstock)
Roman clock & gears and cogs (using black and grey card stock)
and under this cut I have used a 6x6 sheet from
 Kaiser kraft pad - Madame Boutique
The base of the card is another silhouette file
Top Hat card (using black, grey and red cardstock
The embellishments are from my stash, years of collecting ...
Feathers, Steampunk key, cog, Tags, feather and a nice shiny button which was silver, so I coloured it with some
 Tim Holtz -ADIRONDACK alcohol ink - butterscotch
also used some off cuts of coloured Mesh and  
Mulberry paper flowers and a black fabric flower
Lastley I finished off with making a small Banner and a Happy Birthday black peel off sticker, and putting some
 Inkssentials - crackle accents on a few pieces.
I hope you love my card and get inspired to pop over to My Bestie designs and buy some beautiful digi's and start creating your own masterpieces.
