Artistic Outpost is springpunk. What is springpunk? Well, my interpretation is that you take some spring elements such as flowers and butterflies and mix them up with gears, and other steampunk elements. It was a fun challenge. The background paper is from Graphic45 Steampunk Debutante. I love the combination of roses and gears. The main focal image is from Artistic Outpost Happiness. The dirigible is from AO French Flight. The parachute is from AO Paris Exposition. I added Tim Holtz's On-the-Edge Steampunk gears along the bottom and embellished them with paper flowers set on metal gears. All of the layers are adhered to a Kraft base card. I wish the scan showed the rock candy crackle on the butterfly. It adds a fun touch.
I am also entering this card in the Kraft Journal challenge which is anything goes and the Sunday Challenge at Ink on my Fingers which is paper flowers.
