It’s challenge time over at Simply Steampunk Challenges and our theme this month is piecing together (e.g. quilting or stitches) and the whole DT is playing with this gorgeous image, Bride of Frankenstein.
To make up my card I’ve followed the sketch at Sketch N Stash, I did rotate the image element though to fit with the orientation of mine and also swapped the sentiment for some Steampunky metallic goodness and roses. I’ve had the Prima Pipes in my stash for a long time and have used most of them on this project. I thought they fitted well with the image, I imagine Frankenstein’s laboratory to have lots of exposed pipes. I also imagine he’d have strapped his creations down as he brought them to life with an electric shock hence the leather strap and the lovely Idea-ology buckle.
With all the metal elements on this I am also entering it in the current challenge over at SanDee&amelie’s. I was also going to have a piece of fake metal with a chippie frame I faux metalled up but it ended up way too big and hid all the stitching I did. I wanted to keep the stitching in view as it ties in with the image again and all the stitches on her.
The Crafter’s Café has Steampunk for their current theme so I am also linking up my card over there.
