I chose for this this challenge SLS image Goth Girl with Top Hat. She is colored with Copics and PrismaColor pencils. I love seeing steampunk creations, but it is not something that I am good at doing myself. Still, I like to experiment sometimes. There are some great embellishments that go with steampunk creations, but if you are like me you hate running the risk of putting all that money into something that someone will just throw away. So many people that I know just are not sentimental  and do not look at cards as the pieces of art that they are. They get them, keep them a few days and throw them away. I don’t want to spend money on something that will be thrown away.

My card is my first double gate fold. I used the tutorial over at Split Coast Stampers. The Tim Holtz paper reminds me of the tags with the sizes on them that manufacturers used to put in these kind of hats. Check out the little piece of ribbon that I used as a hat band. That took a little work lol. I had to paper piece the hat. I also used the side piece of DP as a pocket. I cut down a Doohickey tag and stuck it in. For the hat on the inside I had to draw a base so that it did not have any hair or face. I glued the image onto the base and then popped the brim with foam tape. I also used Glossy Accent on the glasses.

Anyway, here is the card that I made.
