steampunk lady from the octopode factory meets wild orchid flowers..digi style

Well hey there bloggers and here is my first foray into digi stamps. I can't profess to understand all the tricks yet, I can't even resize........maybe I shouldn't admit that bit!
Anyway, here is my first ever digi meets stamping creation.

The digi stamp (steampunk violet) is  from the octopde factory, not that i'm hooked or anything!?
I printed her out and heat set the ink using my heat gun gently!
She was coloured using promarkers and some glossy accents added to a few of the watches in her hair...just can't live without it.

The background was made with my beloved distress inks, in black soot and pumice stone.Firstly, I stamped the large watch in pumice stone and then the smaller watch in black soot.Then I added some pumice stone around edges to soften look.Finally, I stamped the smaller watch again using silver adirondak paint dabber.

The stamps were from alice in wonderland sheets. The flowers are from wild orchid.

I am entering this into the octopode factory friday challenge girls, girls,girls:

  1. Hey Tracie, What a fantastic card, you sure seem to know what your doing. At first glance I was wondering where you got the paper for the back ground. Everything is brilliant.

  2. Wow, this is fabulous! Love the design, embellishments and papers you used! Hugs, Karen

    P.S. If you have time to stop by, I'm giving away some blog candy!

  3. This card does The Octopode girl justice!! Love the colours and the made from scratch background. Love it!!
