Steampunk Junkies Challenge #2 FLORAL


This evening I am sharing with you the challenge card that I have made for the new challenge over at 

The challenge this week is

and I hope that you will join us in our just for fun challenge

This month I have tried something new to me and I am sssoooo pleased with the results... I have recently purchased some of the 
 inks from 

I sprayed the inks onto my card and left it to dry... this only takes seconds and I was really surprised, the colours are amazing... the stronger you want the colour the more you spray - simple enough even for me! On this card I have only used the two colours as I didn't think any more were needed - the colour that I used were from the citrus collection.

I then stamped my image onto the card and inked the edges - I then sprayed a second piece of card and used this to decoupage the flowers across the side of her face. I then mounted the image on black card and added it to a background of flowery DSP. I added a ribbon bow to the top left hand side of the image...

To this card I have also added some wooden embellishment - perfect to punk up my card! I have coloured them in copper to add a contrast to the bright colours of the citrus ink that I have used!
