SBS steampunk Valentine's day hop


Hello Everyone!!  I do hope that you have been enjoying the newest Steampunk images from Simply Betty!!  I found such tranquility and calm while coloring these gorgeous images.

But first, you should be coming here from my darling friend Leila's blog.  I know she had something just divine for you to feast your eyes on!!!

May I introduce you to the GORGEOUS new Steampunk line from Simply Betty!!
Today I worked with Gwen.  She is just lovely!!  I printed Gwen and colored her with my Copics.  I trimmed her out and set her aside.

My backround paper is new SU! Blueberry Crisp.  I used my Cricut to cut three ovals that are layered in the center.  I sponged my frontmost layer with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink. 
I have a jumbo scallop and a small scallop layered under my 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon that I heat set and melted slightly to give it a bit of a harder texture.  I tied a piece of crocheted ribbon as an accent piece and a large chipboard bracket that I coated in jumbo chunky glitter. 

And when you are done visiting me you will be heading to sweet Tracey's blog to check out her fantastic creation!!
