Two at Once! ACF Challenge # 66 & SPA -Steampunk


So...busy lady that I am (cleaning up after flooded basement last week)I decided to see if I could combine the Art Creations Friday and Sunday Postcard Art challenges this week.
Hhmmm...how to meld the beautiful vintage image of little girls and flowers with Steampunk. A little editing and tinting for the image; a grungy background (by wRItinG at T4L) overlaid on itself, a layer of text and pink roses, some antique watches from Google Images. I put the mechanical bouquet together from the jpeg files for the Steampunk Materials free brush set, and a floral brush set by Jaaaiiro. The clockwork duckie in the corner is courtesy of the Graphics Fairy, and the stamp is my own creation.

And here is " Springtime in Steampunk"

  8. An unusual and most beautiful approach to the steampunk theme - a mixture of machinery and nature. Wonderful artwork.
