I had absolutely no idea what steampunk involved so I set about researching and in a nutshell its Steam = Old/Victorian ie the age of steam and Punk = New/Modern ie punk era or futuristic
That cleared up I got my thinking cap on which stayed there for quite some time and I thought about a victorian lady stamp I've had forever and thought I could use that with some modern elements like a rocket or give her a Borg makeover so off I went searching for said stamp to discover I gave it away on last clearout so had to apologise to Ei as I didn't think I could do the challenge. However Teamie Judie came to my aid and pointed me to some links and I ended up over at Deviant Art and stumbled across this rather stunning beauty which ticks all the boxes.
She's called Steampunk Girl by *SUREYA and you'll find her Steampunk girl here. She is of course a mix of the very Victorian dress and gun mixed with the very modern chibi, love it! I've coloured with promarkers and derwent coloursofts using papers from Bearly Mine who have great cogs ones in the Boys Zone collection which are also perfect for Steampunk.
There that didn't hurt too much and I really do love that image, shes fab! What do you think of her?
