Steampunk Diva

I created this layout using the gorgeous March kit from Scraps of Darkness titled Needful Things. The patterned papers are all  perfectly coordinated with the embellishments which makes creating stunning layouts like this one a breeze! the kit also includes a sketch by Suepup and a challenge is posted in the forum. Everyone on the talented design team provides us with their amazing interpretations of the sketch each month. This is my interpretation of this months sketch. I used a turquoise pearl mist on the background paper and inked the edges with black and colored the edges and the design on the inside corners by watering down some Royal Blue liquid pearls and brushing it on with a paint brush. The layered scalloped circles were made using the Tattered Doily Lucky 8 punch by We R Memory Keepers.
I cut the outside border of the blue paper I punched to allow the patterned paper underneath to show through. The brown flowers on the right side of the page were included in the kit, the black and orange flower are Prima Autumn Harvest collection.

The picture I used was actually an illustration I found while I was searching for Steampunk girls on
Here are some close up shots showing the details...

Hope you enjoyed the details I shared on this layout and thank you for visiting Scrapbook Nirvana!
