Simply Steampunk?!

Hi Sassy fans! Hope you're all having a great weekend with nice weather and lots of fun things to do :D! I'm "recuperating" from two days of workshops (giving them, not taking part) and I'm pooped! Lots of fun though, it's never a problem to be in a room full of women (seriously, not a single man!) who share the same passion and who are committed to making the project you've put together for them :D

Anyway, I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd never heard of steampunk right? Right? I had to google it first when I heard that the current fantabulous Simply Sassy set is the "Steampunk Collection" ;o) I hope I've done this little lady justice, to me this is vintage and that was the idea...

I have used lots of materials (well, for me anyway ;o)) and here they are:

Stamps: Simply Sassy "Vintage Boutique"; Stempelglede border stamp
Paper: Bazzill Basics cardstock vanilla, brown; Maja Design design paper
Embellishments: Zva Creative pearls and swirls; photo anchors; brads; Elzybells buttons
Tools: MFT Die-namics flowers, leaves
E00, E51, E93, E21 (skin, cheeks, lips);
E44, E43, E42, E41 (outfit, eyes);
Y28, E53, E50 (hair)

That's all from me for now, I hope you have a great week, thank you for stopping by!

  8. Oh I love it Erica, gorgeous colouring and love the mono look. I always love your punched flowers and those little fasteners are a neat touch. Hugs Tracy x

  9. Stunnning effect with these papers & the monochrome look utterly softened with the choice of colours for execution. The pearl swirl picks out the dots of the spotty paper beautifully & love the texture you achieved on her belt, gloves & little cardigan top - really gives the sensiontion of brown soft suede.
