Steampunk fatal love

Evening all!

Well i am here with something a bit different from me. I have been eyeing up the Steampunk challenges for awhile and i fell in love with the G45 papers 'Steampunk Spells'. So i am entering my very first steampunk card into the following challenge-

Simply Steampunk Challenge- Tragic Love

For this card i used the image from Simply Betty Stamps and I used the digi of Rapunzel. Now we all now know the story of the beautiful girl locked in the tower with the gorgeous following locks of hair. A story by the unbelievable Brothers Grim. This a tragic love as the poor girl is locked in there by her father and the prince has to climb her hair to get to her.

I used the gorgeous G45 papers for this card and Tim Holtz embossing folders for this. I love this poisons medication label. It is just perfect! I also his graveyard scene and for this i only used the raven part of the embossing folder. I then use the spellbinders heart dies and cut these and embossed them with the same folders.  I used some Kaisercraft ribbon in blood red.

The image is coloured in copics. I distresses the edges then stained with Memento Espresso Truffle and rhubarb stalk ink.

I then added a heart shaped charm with an arrown going through it.

Hope you like my first steampunk
