Steampunk Monochrome

This week at Make My Monday we are continuing our theme for the month of STEAMPUNK, this time we would like to see you make a monochrome project, most people think that black and white is the perfect choice for monochrome, but surprisingly when you look at the blog you will see all but one of us have gone for brown/sepia tones, but the choice is yours. Have fun. I had fun making this card for I was making it for a very dear friend for her birthday, so was able to personalise it with some of the elements forI know she loves steampunk. I would like to thank for her free download which provided some of the card, I also used several stamps, listed below. The piece of material with eyelets was a real lucky find in one of my stash drawers, can't remember when and how I acquired it, but one of those pieces you know will be useful one day.
Stamps used:--Corset -Bravura stamps via E-bay, Lady from Across the Miles via The Stampman, Admit One - from Tim Holtz -Steampunk CMS 107, Flower, freebie from Craft Stamper nagazine.
I am also entering this into Simon Says Stamp and Show Some Steampunk.

  8. This is such a stunning card! I love the butterflies!!!

  9. I always think of steampunk as quite masculine really but I love the way yours has a lovely romantic, feminine feel. I'm fascinated by the corset - did they really wear those? (Although heaven knows I could do with one myself!) Vx
