Steampunk beetle

Hi there, phew weekend at last and now I've got a whole week off work to play in my craft room. I certainly had a lot of fun making this card using the fab new stamps from Chocolate Baroque. There are two newly released sets, Steampunkery and Steampunk Travels and I love them, they have some gorgeous images and some really fun sentiments too. 

I've used lots of different products and really enjoyed messing around with PanPastels, H20s, mica powders and generally getting messy, if you want the details of the techniques I've used pop over to the Chocolate Baroque DT Blog to find out more

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Desmet Designs: for men and boys

I'm really looking forward to my week off work, its been soooooo busy at work for the last few weeks I can't wait to slow down and relax and of course catch up with all my blogland friends.
Thanks for popping by
