Steampunk Octopus

I love crazy, unusual, quirky, creepy cute images - I think that's why I love creating for Lizzy so much :D

Yu can see more of my and the design teams work on the challenge blog and Facebook

This image is number 250 and it's just up my street coz I love Steampunk too AND you can use this to make a great card for a guy.
I've coloured Freddie using Copics and come for a monochromatic colour pallet.  He's been cut out with a Spellbinders die and on the edges I've used antique linen ink from Tim Hotlz to distress it.

There's mixture of papers from Lili of the Valley, Santoro and DCWV.  I've also used black card stock in the layering.

There are plenty of Tim Holtz gears and sprockets.  And if you look closely Freddie is holding onto some tiny Steampunk goggles :D

Hope you love Freddie
