A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Challenge #19 - 613 Avenue Create

Morning everyone! Hope you're all fine and dandy!  

It's that time again and the start of a new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.  The theme for this week is Anything Goes with the option of Shaped Cards

Our Sponsor this week is the fabulous Rick St Dennis and this is the very first time I've coloured up one of his amazingly detailed images!  

Introducing Victoria McSteeme!  I actually didn't realise, until I was colouring her up, that she has a little Steampunk theme going on .......... I guess the clue's in her name lol.

I coloured the very grand Victoria up with Copics and, wow! .... there really is SO much detail on her!! She was an absolute pleasure to colour up - hats off to RSD for being so very talented!

For my 'shape' I chose to do an oval easel card - this is also a first for me!  My dp's are a mixture of Papermania 'Chronology' and Maja Vintage Spring.  I rummaged around in my vintage/steampunk box and fished out my metal gears and clock hands!  I also die-cut a couple of my Tim Holtz gears!  

The final addition was adding some self-adhesive pearls and a whole string of them around Victoria and voila! ..... hope you like :)

I'd love for you to pop on over to the Avenue, have a browse through my DTeamies fab creations and leave us one of your own creations whilst your there!

I would like to enter Victoria into the following:

Anything Goes Challenge - #92 - Shaped but not Square
LOC Challenge - Use a digi image or LOC theme
Sister Act Card Challenge - #6 - Anything Goes

Hope you all have an amazing rest of the day/weekend!
Big hugs,

  2. Tracey, this is just an awesome design! The architecture of the project is outstanding! You did a fabulous job of embracing the Steam Punk theme of the image and your intricate construction never allows the eye to lose interest! Very Nicely Done!
