Brigid Ashwood-steampunk

I really love the steampunk images that are available from Sweet Pea Stamps. They provide such a different feel to a card, and are always so much fun to colour.
The cards I am showing today are from Brigid Ashwood's Sheet #3, Plate #104.

I wasn't sure how I was going to tackle this amazingly detailed image.  So I just started with the skin and hair and then it all just fell into place.
For this second image I really wanted to try my hand at a monochromatic colouring.  So I chose the Cool Greys and set to work.

  The image had a soft feel to it, so I tried to make the card a little more feminine.
It is amazing how to images from the same sheet of stamps can yield such different results.

Thank you so much for joining me today.
