DTBST # 189 Get Krafty

Its time for a Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge and the theme for this weeks challenge is to Get Krafty which means you have to create something using/incorporating Kraft card/paper.

There are more details over at Sassy Studio Designs Blog.

Now here is My SSD DT creation.

I've gone for a steampunk style for this challenge which is really out of my comfort zone.
I created this using SSD Melefecent Pinup digi which you can get hold of along with loads of other digi images over at 

I coloured her using a mixture of spectum noir alcohol pens from crafters companion and copic pens.
Then inked around the edges using one of the vintage Tim Holtz Distress ink pads and mounted onto some black card, for my background I used a mask which was inked up with perfect medium laid onto my card stock which was then run through my GC then added some cosmic shimmer black aurora embossing powder and heated it with a craft heat gun and mounted this and the digi image topper onto my base card.
Once this was all done I set about creating my greeting I used two spellbinder dies to create the greeting tile and the bracket and inked again with Tim Holtz Ink pads and added some bakers twine to the bracket and greeting and mounted onto my card to give you the finished result.

Just need to thank everyone for stopping by and hope this has inspired you to get creating I do love to see what everyone does with the theme and images available.
