Buckwell's Crafty Challenge - May 2015 - Spots or stipes or both

Today is 1 May and therefore time for another challenge over at the "Buckwells Crafty Challenge".  The challenge topic is "spots or stripes or both".

Our sponsor this month is:  
Challenge Sponsor
Joanne from "A Lil Digi Heaven".
 Instead of making a card I decided to do another journal page.  For this page I have used the A Lil Digi Heaven image called "Coco".  I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens and did the background with a brown, yellow, white, blender and coarse medium Pan Pastels.  I added Glossy Accents to her eyes and her goggles.  Around the edge I used a cog stamp from Visible Image (set is called Time after Time).
The backing papers were from Summertime Designs and a Debbi Moore Steampunk Double CD and I decided to include both spots and stripes. For the cog border along the middle I used a cog border mask, the packing from a Crafter's Companion textures embossing folder and inked over with Time Holtz's Gathered Twigs distress ink.

The cogs that were cut out were from Simon Says Stamp and although I think they were to be used in the acetate form I didn't. I put them through the Grand Calibur to emboss, brushed over with a brown Pan Pastel and then cut them all out.

The journal page has been finished off with a Visible Image sentiment, steampunk flowers/embellishments from the Debbi Moore Steampunk Double CD and two brads for the centres of the flowers.

I am entering this journal page into the following challenges:
