Steampunk With A Feminine Touch

Yes, I know I said yesterday that would probably be my last post until after the cruise, but I got an inspiration for another steampunk tag, and had to roll with it.

Usually steampunk, being all about gears and machinery and Victorian images, has a masculine feel to it.  Thanks to Graphic 45's gorgeous Steampunk Debutante line, it can also be soft and lovely.  One of their images was really speaking to me and it wound up on this tag:



For the background I layered two DCWV papers.  I cut out the beautiful debutante and then added my own embellishments.....glossy accents, glaze pens, and a bunch of tiny watch parts from my stash to go with those already part of her hairdo.  I hope you can see all those details, and I also hope if you click on the photo the enlargement isn't a fuzzy mess, which has been happening lately.

And now, I really do have to stop and get packing!

Such a lovely tag! Those images are really really pretty and I love the way you've added the sprockets to the hair, I had a lovely close up and no fuzzy to be seen! Enjoy the cruise, one day God willing I'll be on it too!

Eileen...your tag is really cool. Like you said, usually you think of steampunk as being more metal and masculine. But, you've managed to soften it with the lovely lady from G45. Great combination! <3 Candy
