Good morning I hope you are enjoying your weekend - don't they just fly by?  Today sees a new challenge at Hobbycutz and the theme this week is Steampunk!  Not something I do much of but I did have fun doing this one!  We were very luck to get images from our sponsor Sassy Studios to work with and I used Steampunk Amelia, here she is:

I do love colouring in my Sassys and Amelia was no exception! She has been coloured with Copics and some Glossy Accents added to the glass on her goggles.  I haven't used any DPs for the card but embossed the backgrounds on the pearlescent card using two embossing folders Couture Creations Without a Lock and a Sizzix Tim Holtz gear one.  I used Spellbinders Long Classic Rectangles to cut the image out and matted it on a Long Deckled Rectangles (not sure if that is the proper name).  The clock is a Tim Holtz die and the pieces in the upper left and lower right corners were made with Spellbinders Ironworks motifs.    All the Gears are Hobbycutz lasercuts and I have used Perfect Pearls in gold to give everything a sheen!

Here is another view:

Please go over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have made, there are some fabulous projects using Kobie's wonderful lasercuts!

Well I am off to the Trafford Centre today with my daughter and sister, we decided to go today instead of last Sunday. I want to get there a bit early before the crowds!  Thank you so much for looking I will be back tomorrow! Take care xx
