Kanban Steam Punk

Good evening to you all in the land of blog

Today I attended to deliver my copic class at Grimsby Crafts and today's class started off with a special treat from Janet just for me, she had been camped on the doorstep said Lynn, think she was excited to give me my little pre birthday treat :) and I can see why she wanted me to open it early to see my face, as it is fabulous, another steam punk card with amazing little boxes underneath all with a little something in for me.  Here it is
Isn't it gorgeous, I felt so very special
Thank you Janet :)

The card that I taught today used a Kanban images and some gorgeous papers too, all with a contrast of gold mirror card  the flower is made with the largest paper shaper and star punch for the centre.
The cogs are a Tim Holtz die, the legs of the mannequin were made with craft wire wrapped around my good old tent peg and the lace added to replace the cross hatch of the stamped image.  Gold stickles has been used for the bodice and the neck metal wear. Pearls from the Hobby House and everything else from Grimsby Crafts.

 Now if you have not noticed, although I am sure you have my new 600 follower candy has been posted and you can enter this here . I would like to welcome all my new followers  and wish all my followers luck in the 600 follower candy.   Just have to say you are all awesome thrilled to be over the 700 mark and looking forward to more candy buying:)

What a lovely gift - love the images and the subtle colouring and the cute little boxes. I can see why she was keen for you to open it up.
Your card looks lovely, like the touch of lace - I didn't think I liked steampunk style either but I've seen some really great cards and it's growing on me too.
