This month's optional theme is STEAMPUNK! LOL, the very first time I was given this theme (several years ago) I had to look up what it meant. I think it's such a fun theme so I hope you like the Bestie image I selected and the way I designed the card.
I've had these papers in my stash along with the Tim Holtz gears. The die cut is an old Sizzix die - the fat type - I've had for several years. The image is colored using Copic Markers then I added some Glossy Accents to his glasses and clock face.
Our challenge is open for a month. You can share your project using the link above.
