About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Masculine Steam Punk

Not sure if Steam Punk is one or 2 words. I have seen it both ways. Oh, well. Again, I have stepped out of my comfort zone to make this card. I love the steam punk look, but have never attempted to do anything with it myself. I will be entering this card into a few challenges:
1. Outlawz: Wedesday sketch
2. Outlawz: Thursday Twist
3. Paper Playtime: Anything goes
4. Created with Love: Anything Goes

 Here goes:
All papers were from the DCWV Habberdash stack. The top hat in the square is also from that same stack. The gears were free digis as were the wings. I printed the wings and the gears onto cream paper. The gears were sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink. The wings were sponged with Stampin' Up Crumb Cake Ink.

I think it turned out really pretty cool. Hope you like it too!
