Quirky? ... or just weird :D

This week at LOC the challenge is to make something "Quirky  or Weird"
While the August's challenge at Dream in Darkness is to get Steampunky.
These are two styles that work really well together, and on the theme of "togertheness"
I decided to blend physical crafting with digi crafting...just because I can :D

I started by stamping and stencilling a selection of cogs/clocks and whatnots onto a piece of craft card stock...
 I already knew the images I was going to add.
(coloured with markers)
Again colouring around the image helps to soften the outline against the background.
 You can never have too many cogs on a steampunk project...
die cut card inked and highlighted with metallic ink...
 to add a bit of dimension.
 Don't you just love Gwendolyn's saucy attitude?
I then uploaded this photo into my graphics programme
(I use Serif Craftartist 2)
and added the frame/legend and gnome :D
*Staring at my Pumpkin is going to get your Mangle Wurzled*

Enjoy, and a Blessed Lammas to all XXX
