…but I drifted


There’s some new editions to the Fairy Tales & Myths collection of Steampunk images over at Simply B Stamps and I have the gorgeous Snow White to show today.

As with all my release day images I have placed this image on a Kraft album page, the layout for this one follows the current sketch at Friday Sketch Challenge.  I seem to always find a sketch I like in the wrong shape, normally I am resizing rectangles to squares but this time I had to go the other way.  It was a great sketch though for showing off the designer papers I wanted to use in all their woodsy glory.  I really wanted to contrast the background that is more Snow White and the Huntsman with my Snow White who is in the bright colours of Disney.

I had to add butterfly embellies, I wanted to add some birds too but didn’t have any small enough, again reminiscent of Disney’s Snow White.  And with my butterflies I am entering this in the current Crafting Musketeers’ challenge. 

But of course this is a Steampunk project so it had to have Steampunk butterflies, I thought the Jolee’s Boutique ones needed some added dimension to I added some real gears.  I’d have liked to add a large one on the right side too but my stash of gears is almost completely used up and the couple I had were way too big.  In keeping with the Steampunk theme my other butterflies are a bit grungy as is my label, which is a Prima wood trinket turned over to reveal the uncoloured side.  As this is a Steampunk project I am also entering it in the Crafts 4 Eternity current challenge.
