This week at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge CIC231 we've gone Steampunk. The chatter among the sweeties was that none of us were very familiar with this genre and weren't very sure how we were going to proceed but I've had a peek at what the rest of the team have created and I think they did a great job. You should stop over to our blog to check it out, and if you have some time, stop and leave the sweeties some love, you know how much those comments mean to you.
Steampunk can be somewhat daunting if it isn't your thing. It's a growing subculture that looks like Victorian English fashion forget to be prim. And then there's the gadgets, lots of gadgets. If you're not familiar with it do a google search you'll be gone for days.
Just like the rest of the team I was a little perplexed how to proceed with my card but I happen to have a few dies and stencils that are cogs and gears that I purchased for no particular reason so I pulled them out. Then since it's October, and Kenny K's gals usually are pretty full breasted I was inspired to make my card a Steampunk meets Breast Cancer Awareness card. Hey it works for me and that's all that matters. This challenge is all about inspiration. So whatever inspires you, we can't wait to see.
Here's the deets:
stamp - Kenny K Downloads Velocitia
ink - printer
paper - My Favorite Things "Natural", "Pink Lemonade" and "Steel Blue" card stock
miscellaneous - MFT "MPD Time Pieces" and "Sentiment Strips" die-namics"; Tim Holtz' "Gadget Gears" die; baker's twine; breast cancer awareness charm; MFT "MPD Gears" stencil; Gelly roll clear star pen; Marvy scarlet pen
