Just Inspirational Challenges & Delicious Doodles

All of us on Team B at
would like to thank everyone that joined us for our Brads challenge.  What a simple embellishment and yet so many great ways to use them!
We really have some talented folks entering our challenges...hope to see you all back this week and lots of new faces, too.

For this week, our theme is
Kraft paper

Our fabulous sponsor is

The lucky winner will be able to select some of the coolest digis available!  The variety at Delicious Doodles is incredible.  If you're looking for something a bit edgier, you'll love their images.  There are also some very feminine ones.  I think everyone will be able to find something that suits their fancy.

This week, I've really stepped out of my usual comfort zone and attempted to do something a bit Steampunk.  I'm not real familiar with the style so if I failed miserably, please be kind with your remarks!

This hot little Mama's name is Steampunk Sally and she looks like she has a "Take no prisoners" kind of attitude.  My kinda' chick!

Since our theme is Kraft, I printed and colored the image on Kraft from Paper Temptress.  It is the Colored Brown Bag Kraft that I've recently become addicted to using for coloring.

The paper used for the clock and the dry embossed mat at the bottom of the card are also from Paper Temptress.  It is the Eggplant Brown Bag.  I love the texture the sanding gives the embossed mat.  Since it is kraft core, it really adds a lot of visual interest.

In the photo above, you can see a bit of the dimension from the skull and cross bones.  I printed the image on white paper as well as the kraft.  The skull and cross bones was covered with a thin layer of Glossy Accents and fussy cut after it had dried completely.  It was then just paper pieced onto the colored kraft.

I used is a Tim Holtz sentiment stamp that fits Sally's attitude perfectly.
"One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting new discoveries."
Love that!!
The quote is actually from A. A. Milne,
most famous for "Winnie the Pooh."

Other supplies used for this card:
Coloring medium: ProMarkers
Paper for card base: Bazzill
Designer Paper: DCWV Tattered Time stack
Charm, gears and clock hands: Michael jewelry dept.
