Bombshell Miss December's Challenge

Torrey is Miss December and her challenge to us this month is:

Now I bet you’re all anticipating that this month’s challenge will have something to do with the Holidays. If so, you’d be Miss Staken, as it has NOTHING to do with the Holidays, whatsoever (that is unless YOU want it to). Want a hint? Here’s a little “word-association” glimpse into my creative psyche to guide y’all to our theme this month. This could be scary. Ready?
December – Christmas – Snow – Cold – Hot – Radiator – SteamPunk
(you with me?)…and that leads us to this month’s CHALLENGE… 

....“Hot and Steamy” – a Steampunk challenge.

I LOVE steampunk so I was very excited about this challenge.
At first I did toy with turning the Ship from Homeward Bound into a flying steampunk vehicle but then decided to use  Rose's Portrait  instead !

 I used clear shrink plastic to make the small cogs from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Die for Rose's hair and to decorate the card. My daughter thought Rose looked like the 'Eye patch lady' from the recent series of Doctor Who but I think Rose looks much kinder than her!

Copic Pens E15, E18, E00, E02, E11, E21, C1-09 and 100, R85, R22, R29
Spectrum Noir Pens
Tim Holtz Lost and Found Paper Stack
