Quixotic Paperie Challenge Blog Challenge No. 41

Quixotic Paperie Challenge DT make to show today and this week the challenge was thought up by the lovely Emma and is:

How Does Your Garden Grow?

All about adding flowers and / or leaves to your make. 

I decided to go on a bit of a steampunk / punk / emo  theme for my make this week using the wonderful The Greeting Farm Wild Sprout Eric available over at Quixotic Paperie. I've matched him (her?) with the gorgeous Graphic 45 papers from the Halloween in Wonderland and Christmas Past packs. 

The papers were fun to distress and I 'rusted' a silver chain, safety pins and brads to embellish the make. The leaves are cut from a book page and I lightly glazed them with the Viva Decor Walnut Gloss Pen

The cogs are light card painted with acrylic paints. Got some more close-ups:

Showed a lot of details today! Think I quite like how this one turned out LOL!

Before I go just a quick mention of the new special stamp from Elizabeth Bell at SCACD. Elaine has her on Pre-order for delivery in a couple of weeks.

Have a fabulous Emo Wednesday.
