Poisoned Peas Please Challenge #7–Steampunk

I chose The Oval from Simply Betty Stamps to do my project.  I loved it so much I decided to make a clock out of it and hang it in my scrap room.  The hands were a little dark so I put some Stickles on them.  The cogs were sent to me by Ms. Kristy Deyette because she is the bestest friend evAH.  She helps a girl out in a bind!  Recollections has a paper pack called Steampunk Botanica now and I used a sheet of that for the background.  If you look closely you can see a butterfly on the left of the woman.  It also had the place for a picture where I cut out and my husband put the clockworks for me.  The gray flower is Jolee’s Boutique and came from Michael’s.  “The Oval Portrait” is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe involving the disturbing circumstances surrounding a portrait in a chateau.*  I think that is one of the reasons I picked this particular digital image.  Well, I picked it first and then found out the background later but I was definitely intrigued after I found out.

Please come join us at Poisoned Peas Please.  This challenge runs until Saturday, October 6th.  Simply Betty is offering 3 digital stamps of your choice from her store to the winner.  I hope that I have inspired you to come out and play with us.  I am doing my best to do quality work and try to get you excited to play.  If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.  We as the Design Team are here for you!  Until we meet again…Beware Dark Shadows…BWAhahahahahahaha
