Steampunk Sally

I can't remember the last time I made a card just for fun. I used to make them every day but for the last eighteen months I've only made DT cards and they've tied in to family birthdays.

Earlier this week, being well ahead with my DT cards, I decided to colour some images that I liked and with no particular theme. I printed off some Delicious Doodles images and so far I've got three completed. I love Steampunk Sally and I've made this card for one of my daughters in law. My DiL is called Sarah and doesn't have any studs, or rings in her nose, but she does have blonde hair and tattoos so I think she'll appreciate this card.

I coloured her with my Promarkers, touching up with a silver Sakura pen in places and embossing the belt studs with bronze embossing powder. I also added some turquoise pearls to the dress and jewellery. My card blank is by Joanna Sheen. The turquoise card is from Papermill. A sheet of white paper was embossed with one of the new Crafter's Companion's embossalicious folders called 'A Stitch in Time'. I matted the embossed paper on to turquoise card as the base for the design. The image was matted on to more of the turquoise card and set to the top left. I'd wrapped some baker's twine to the right and added a silver clock charm. I generated the sentiment on the computer and then attached it with a silver square paperclip.

I've really enjoyed myself and will try to keep up with making cards for fun again.

I'm entering my card in to the following challenge:
