My soul is in the sky

I’m sharing a card today featuring Lucy Loo Magnified Star from The East Wind.

I needed a card for a friend’s birthday and wasn’t sure what image to use until I saw the current challenge at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers was P is for Punk...Steampunk that is.  Now Edna is not a woman to be gainsaid and really, it’s been way too long since I got my Steampunk on so I just knew I had to play along.  I was going to use another image but went with this one as the recipient’s nickname is K-Star (don’t ask me why, it’s just how she rolls).  No snark to this card though, not that I didn’t try but after fruitless Googling for ideas I finally admitted defeat on some snarky pun about steam or smoke.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch at Die Sketchtanten.  It was looking a bit plain so I kind of went to town with my flowers.

I picked my colours by playing along with the Tic Tac Toe game at Vintage Stamping, where I’ve gone with people (my image), metal (the cool embellies from Tim Holtz) and, of course, the colours scheme of blue and brown.  I really like how this turned out, not too girlie but pretty in lovely muted colours, a lot like K-Star herself.
