Steampunk - Saturated Canary

Hi there!

I had some time today to craft without an agenda. No holidays, no birthdays, no challenges. You know what I mean...

I started coloring with my Copics. One of the images lead to more inspiration, and I created a decoration for my desk at work. 

The image is from Saturated Canary. She is so cool and classy. One thing I love about Saturated Canary images is the detail she adds to the dresses. I love all the layers. 

The paper is from the Mariposa Stack from DCWV. I layered Black Magic Coordinations and Gold Cardstock. I then sewed the three layers together and back it with a piece of chipboard.  I took some of my Chippies from Make it Crafty, added gold paint, and used them in the corners. I love how they bring elegance to any project.

I was going for a sepia feel when coloring the image. I used a variety of E's. It was completely out of the norm for me, and I really like the result. I need to find my way out of my box more often. 


 Rather than making a card, I made this a picture with an easel backing that can stand up at my desk. I am looking forward to more "No Reason" creating.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
