Here are some more entries in the Not So Round Robin Challenge that Kim is hosting for Swirlydoos.
For week #2, the category is "Steampunk".
I've used scraps from different manufacturers - 7 Dots, Graphic 45, Prima and Creative Embellishments chipboards that were given to me by Maggi Harding.
First is a lovely Creative Embellishments mermaid. She's a bit pale from her life under the sea, but her pretty dress (Prima Metallique Acrylic in Emerald Green) certainly makes up for that. But oh my! her gears have more that a touch of rust (Prima Rust Effects Kit) and her lovely blonde locks seem to be mixed with seaweed.
I've owned this stamp (Graphic 45's Time Flies set by Hampton Arts) for years. I used it once and it's been collecting dust ever since. Her lovely hairdo is made of Creative Embellishments Mini Gears all rusted up mixed in with a few metal gears from my stash. The background was made with another dusted-off stamp (Tim Holtz's Steampunk) and a bit of Washi Tape.
Speaking of Tim Holtz stamps - here's another image that I haven't used in a long while - this on from the Pen and Pencil set. More Washi Tape and more metals from my stash over a piece of G45's Steampunk Debutante make up the background. A "thank you" to Cindy Brown for the ArtC key to my gentleman's headgear..
Here's a beautiful metal butterfly purchased through EBay, topped with a Prima Hardware Findings bulb and seated on a couple of tags from the Steampunk Debutante by Graphic 45. A Prima brad in the corner finishes my fourth entry.
