Guest Designer - Simply Steampunk Challenges

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by again, It's been one busy month over here at Speshink ;)
A while back I was asked to be a guest designer for Betty's Steampunk Challenge blog.
This is the piece I did for Simply Steampunk Challenges  and Betty of Simply B Stamps, Betty has the rights to sell these beautiful line images by 
This is part of the Zodiac set but there are lots of images in this style so well worth having a look.
I have made a 6''x 6'' page for my fat book and have used the Leo image. The page has been cut from mount board, stamped with a cover the card stamp and embossed with black Powder, I have used distress inks to colour the back ground.
The Leo Image was coloured with copic's, fussy cut and clear embossed twice, she was then glued to the background.. A couple of eyelets were added and a couple of fancy brads.
