I've Got Steam On The Brain!

Steampunk that is!

We hit over 500 on the PCP forum and SSD will not
let that pass without a celebration!
So we are having a progressive challenge!
Have you ever done a progressive challenge before? If not basically
you get the first image have a specified time to make a project with said image
and if you do you will get a second image and it continues.
For this challenge you will receive

Isn't she hot? And the next ones are just as hot...if not more!!
Kind of a mix of Mae West and Lara Croft!
Is your interest piqued, yet???
For this first challenge you must have metal embellisments!
I couldn't find what I was initially going to use so I made my own!
I wanted more of a silver look so I used some wire and twisted me some "leaves"
added some metallic silver on the flowers and her buckles,
added metal brads to the center of the flowers and then finally the
swirls are not rhinestones but metal stud thingys!
Yup that is a technical term!
The silver background paper was made with silver embossing powder.
I wish that the picture had come out a bit better,
but with no flash it was worse and at certain angles the metal caused to much glare!
Hope you can see it ok!!
Now head on over to the SSD Blog and get your image, you'll be glad you did!
She is only there till the end of the day!

Wowzie, wow, wow, wow...that is one hot image Kim and you have done an incredible job of showcasing her! Those flowers with the silver tips, the twisted metal for the leaves and the metal stud thingy's are the perfect accents for this metalishious image! You have done a totally fantabulous job on this.
