Something VERY different!!

Good afternoon peoples!
Yep, ANOTHER post!!
Feeling like I've got a bit of mojo lately... so I'm making the most of it...
(and I've tidied my craft room, so I can actually find stuff now!)

I've been naughty this morning and paid my first visit to Tickled Pink stamps...
I have been told off though, hubby checked my paypal account this afternoon...
oooopsssss!!
I've been admiring these quirky cuties for AGES... but I wasn't sure what I'd do with them,
so kept resisting...till I saw the Victorian steampunk ones!!!
AND that they are available in DIGI... awesome!!
My son has been asking for a bookmark for ages, so thought these would be perfect...

Found some spray inks in my stash, that I have never used! so I had a little play... don't remember buying them, or what I bought them for!... maybe a little craft fairy bought them for me ...;)
 Anyway... heres my VERY different for me bookmark...

Don't know how i'd describe the style... maybe just my version of vintage?!
Heres a more close up image of the details...


You can get Steampunk Luca HERE
I've coloured him with promarkers...
The text paper was a free download from melstampz
i've layered the pocket watch onto it in my graphics program before printing... that was also free from HERE
I inked all the edges with my new found inks...
The sentiments were created on the PC
The ticket strip was a border from a sassafrass paper, I folded it to make it curved...
The strip at the bottom was from the same paper...
the ribbon and gems are from my stash
The chain and charm were from ebay...

I SO enjoyed making this, and my son's verdict?...
'Mum its well cool!! you're AWESOME!'

Everybody wins...yey!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges...

Paperplay - Anything but a card
My Mums Craft Shop - Something old/Something new (new image/old inks)
Karens Doodles - Perfect purples
Paper Sundaes - choose 2 toppings (I choose purple/gems)

WOW, its so great to enjoy crafting again... I might even have something else to post tomorrow...
I know its mad isn't it!?!
