Steampunk Profile - OSAAT #200

Hi my friends!  Welcome to another edition of One Stitch at a Time blog post.

First, thanks for all the advice for getting my hands back in shape.  I do use Eucerin on them but when they have a crack, I need more than that and will use some Bach's Rescue Cream on the crack and put a band aid over it. Usually it is much better in 1-2 days.  The Eucerin just soaks into my hands and I have to keep applying it over and over.  This cold Winter weather has really been hard on the skin.

We had lovely weather yesterday and today - starting to warm up.  I got out yesterday and cleaned up the patio and brought in all the Winter kitty bedding for a good washing.  I could totally live with this weather year round.

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our theme is Use a Digi.  I always love doing that one.  You can be very creative.  Oh, and there is a prize and a sponsor for this week, we have wonderful Prize this week -7 image Prize pack and our Sponsor is our Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.  To win the main prize you MUST use an Image from our store and please put an # after your name so we don't miss you.  Runner up prize for person using non-store image is $3 to spend in the StitchyBear Digital Outlet.  So everyone can win something.

So, on to my card

I was a little intimidated by this image with all those cogs and wheels in her hair, but once I figured out what to do with them, it all came together rather nicely I think.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Alipeeps - Steampunk Profile
  • Sentiment - None- There are some words on the d/p so I just left it at that
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up - More Mustard; Gold Metallic c/s
  • Designer Paper - Graphic 45 - Steampunk Spells
  • Accessories - Spellbinders - Sprightly Sprockets Nestabilities Dies; Gold Labels Four; Classic Oval; Cheery Lynn Die - Lace Corner Deco H; Ribbon from my stash; Spare Parts - clock face; Black Multiliner and Blue Multiliner Pens
