The Paper Pad Challenge - 8 October 2011

A crafting friend of mine has set up her own challenge blog called The Paper Pad.  Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to enter in her first weeks' challenge so I made sure I made one for this challenge using the freebies that Pascale has designed to be used for the challenge.  The topic is "Steampunk".
For my card I have used the blue freebie backing papers.  The image is from Saturated Canary and is called "Sprocket the Steampunk Aviator".  I have coloured it in with Promarkers and then I have stippled a background with a brown chalk ink pad and an ink duster.  I used a plastic spacer for some CDs and used my alcohol inks on it and then punched some holes in it.  I added some brads, tied some embroidery thread through one side and added an antique style glass dropper.  The card is finished off with some antique style buttons and a Craftwork cards sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Hi there, I just wanted to pop by and tell you about the Wild Rose Studio blog hop, you could win 7 of their stamps and three paper pads, all you have to do is make a christmas themed card, and you dont have to use a Wild Rose studio stamp or product. (Although we would love it if you did)And then comment, on all of the DT blogs. Come and join in the fun. Would love to see you there (http://blog.wildrosestudio.co.uk/)
