Steampunkkkk.......

meets Shabb ~i~liciousness.....

welcome Punk~0~liciousness

and that's my take on this weeks challenge over
at Simon Says Stamp and Show.........

When I think of Steampunk....I think of different mediums and textures......and so my quest began.


I covered a paper mache book box, that I had acquired, with Graphic 45 Steampunk Dubutante adhered with Multi Medium. I wet the paper, to be used on the spine, so it would form nicely to the ridges. I then spritz the entire book with Biscotti Pearl mist......OMW love that stuff!!


Inspired by the dressform on the G45 papers.....I pulled out my Sewing Room die....some cardboard and cut out a Beauty! Thinking once again of textures/mediums....I pulled out a piece of wire mess and created a Punk~0~Licious dress with a lace under skirt. To finish off her attire I cut a pair of metal wings from the Hearts/Wings die. What would a Punk~0~liscious creation be without  Gadget Gears cut from Grungeboard, cardboard and specialty paper.


To add character I added Tissue Tape to the sides of the book box. 
To help the Butterflies pop....I dabbed on some
Patina Stickles. Then, I lathered some Rock Candy Crackle paint on the G45 tag.


And what creation of mine would be complete without hand died flowers. 
I used layers of Color Me Crazy flowers, colored with various
