Body Clock

'Steampunk. Steampunk. Steampunk.', that's what has been going round in my head. 
Steampunk things do not come naturally to me so thank goodness inspiration struck yesterday. When I think of Steampunk I think of cogs and then I think of clocks, so I thought of my body clock and how young my brain is even if the rest of me is starting to stop working, going grey or falling off!
I ended up making this ATC, hope you like it!
I started off with some white card and swooshed some purple and blue colour on with some Derwent Inktense pencils, added the die cut vintage lace at the bottom for some texture and to give my little lady something to stand on. Then applied a thin layer of gesso all over. I then stamped the Daisy and coloured, gesso'd again and stamped the checkerboard and gesso'd again. I stamped Lavendar Sprig, Butterfly, and Flying Girls, coloured and cut. For the body I melted some clear embossing powder and stuck some watch parts in. I then glued everything in place and wrote the sentiment.
Steampunk is the theme for the our challenge this month, here are the details, I hope you can join in with a chance to win £15!
Wishing you a happy day, Sam xxx
