One stitch at a time Anything goess #186

Hi there!

Its time for another challenge with Stitchy Bear and i am really excited as this is my first post as a DT member for One Stitch At A Time challenges so come on over and join in with the fun!

The theme this week is Anything goes

The prize for this week is from the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet and will be a  complete set of images that the DT used in challenge #184 and the runner up prize is $3 for a digi  but to win the prize you must use an image provided by the store.

Now my image is Steampunk digi set is by Coosty Creations  and to be totally honest i had never coloured a Steampunk image let alone a steam ship!  It was a set including digi papers called 
Steampunk Sail Ship

So here is my idea of a Steampunk sailing ship!

So you can see i have used a paper mill card and turned it into an A5 card blank.  I have then  used two of the digital papers included with the pack and then mounted the ship on a piece of black card.
I finished it off with a few embellishments ...two metal cogs and a black anchor.

I used the following Copic Colour's to colour in the ship

Sails E 81, 84,87
Boat E 74, 71, 70 / E 53, 55, 57
Smoke E 40
Pipes Y 28, 26, 23

I also used a gold pen on certain area to highlight the pipes and gaps in the side of the ship.
I hope you will like my creation and hope you will be kind enough to leave me a little love.

I would like to enter into the following challenges with my card:

Challenges 4 everybody - anything goes
Opus Gluei - for the man in your life
CMC Copic challenge group - anything goes
Creative fingers - anything goes with optional twist
Simply Steampunk Challenges - monochromatic

Many thanks
