I hope that you were able to join in on the MayzyArt Blog hop yesterday! I would like to thank everyone who stopped by and left some love. It is truly appreciated.
I am back today with another Steampunk lady. Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of working the Heartfelt Creations booth at the MegaMeet Craft show here in Michigan. I got to meet Emily Lou and other members of the HC crew. I truly had a blast. As payment for my work, I opted to work for product because I would end up spending cash there anyway. :-) Well, I earned a few of their awesome dies as well as some beautiful stamps and papers. I also left the booth with tons of inspiration. If you have never visited their blog, oh my you are missing out. One of the creations that inspired me was a beautiful tag that one of their DT members created. I immediately knew that I wanted to make the tag and I wanted to use a Steampunk theme.
You can find my inspiration here and here's my tag.
I used my Cameo to create a black mat for this card. I used some dp from Quick Quotes Scrapbook Co. which worked really well with the whole Steampunk theme. I cut out the gears, belt and image on my Cameo and used my Heartfelt Creations Decorative Blossom Corner and 2 Decorative Lattice Swirls from the Timeless Amour Die set. I used a combination of black cardstock and metallic grey cardstock for the embellishments and matting. I aslo used white cardstock to cut out the Decorative Blossom corner. I colored my image using Copics and added glass glaze to her goggles. I finished my tag off with some embellishments (clocks, keys and glass beads) and a pearl.
I had Paulette from Create with TLC to create an sentiment for me, but once this was completed I had no where to put it. Therefore, I shall use the sentiment on another creation I am working on.
Once again, I thank you for looking and commenting.

Remember: There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
