Ventura Val- Corrosive Challenge #181 Steampunk







Hello! Today I'm sharing the card I made the new challenge at the Corrosive Challenge blog.
This week's theme is one of my favorites! Steampunk!
Our sponsor for this challenge is also one of my favorite digi companies...Kenny K!
Kenny K's steampunk  Burlesque images are so amazing, and just like the Krash Kittenz, I need to color them all!
I've chosen to use this fabulous image called Val Ventura. I was a little intimidated when I first started coloring this image. After what seemed like an incredible amount of time I finally had my color combinations picked out but I was still a little puzzled as to what to all color teal, or purple, or gold, etc. All the detail,wow!  Then the real challenge began...trying to make the sheer skirt appear like it was in front of the image and not behind. I've been wanting to try that sheer coloring for some time so I was happy to finally have attempted that.
Those fabulous papers are from the new Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper pack.
I actually used 6 different pattern papers from that pack to create this card. The flowers are double an triple layered.
I love how it looks like there's so much depth to it.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's Steampunk creations so be sure to visit the Corrosive blog and link up for some fabulous prizes.
Thanks for the visit, and have a great week! Hugs!
