Steampunk Tinman

Hi there,

It's time for Inspiration Monday on the Prickley Pear blog .  For my card this week chose to do a steampunk card using Steampunk Tinman and the Mini Gears dies.  It's meant to be a guy card with the oval sentiment with the tools and gears. Could be a Valentine card or birthday card.  I colored him up with Copics and fussy cut him out. I am always in need of guy cards for my stash.  They are always hard for me to do but this image is very well suited for cards for him! Easy to work with and color. I also used this weeks Deconstructed sketch #159. The link is below in challenges. Take a look and stop by the Prickley Pear blog and see what the rest of the team has for you today.
