Lady Lavinia.....

I'm trying hard to get back into my regular crafting now Christmas is over and the deccies are down and the old craft-room is nearly tidy and the spring-cleaning is at full throttle and the grandbabbies are staying nearly every week-end and........  well, you get the picture.....LOL!

That's why I tend to post and strange times of the day and night - just depends on when I get to sleep and if I remain asleep or am woken by anything.  


So, whilst I am awake, listening for grandbabbies or being licked awake by one of the dogs, I use my awake time usefully (if I can keep off Facebook long enough..!) and do some crafting.

This morning's creation features an image I've had for a while but not used for a card yet. It's a stunning drawing from 'Simply Betty' stamps' Steampunk range. I love this range of digi-stamps and have a few of them so I've used Lady Lavinia, coloured with my trusty Copics,  for this project and to enter into the Simply Steampunk Challenge themed 'Steampunk Gals'.





I do love Steampunk but sometimes, I feel, some of the images and projects are not to my taste as they border on ugly but this range of Steampunk stamps are anything but ugly - they are beautifully drawn and, indeed, some of them are from illustrations for books.


I think this 'Graphic 45' paper from the Steampunk Debutante pad is really pretty, as is Lavinia herself so, you see, Steampunk CAN be pretty!

(I do apologize if any of my links look a bit odd but Blogger is presently playing up and won't let me highlight anything)

I would urge you to pop over to the 'Simply Steampunk' blog and have a look at the DT's creations - they're really wonderful and full of inspiration and then over to 'Simply B' to have a good look at the lovely Betty Robert's digis.
You'll be glad you did!
