Here's my piece - its using the image from DitzieDigiDesign called Mr Steam. Its an 8x8 canvas. You can win this and a selection of docrafts steampunk stuff - sorry I haven't had time to take a picture!!

I coloured the image using spectrum noir pens and fussy cut him. Then I got on with the canvas - I had all sorts of items from That craft place and used many of them to create the textured background in this piece. Once dry I did some layering using stencils and texture paste and after that was dry i set to with acrylic paints and mica sprays.

In this closer shot you can get a better view of the image and also the dutch doobadoo stencil that i bought from That Craft Place. 

So on the hop you should have come here from erin and your next stop is suzi.

I hope you find the time to join in with the hop! I will draw the winner of my piece and extra candy from the comments left on this post!
