You're the Best

The challenge over at Outlawz Saturday Paper Al a Mode starting tomorrow is 'Junk in the Trunk'. Pull out metal, clay, cardboard, pins, safety pins, twine etc and use it on your card. It is sponsored by the very talented Rick St Dennis who's image takes center stage on my Steampunk creation.

Card ingredients include:

Stamps: Rick St Dennis 'Captain McSteeme', Kaszazz 'You're the Best' sentiment, wings & vintage clock
Copics: Skin: E51  E21  E11
            Hair: E25  E29
            Coat & Hat: G82  G94  G99
            Pants & Shoes: C1  C3  C5  C7  C9
            Vest: E07  E09  E18  Y15  YR23
Papers: Kaiser Craft 'Sears & Sons' paper pack, cardstock. The 'cogs' were created by the faux rust effect, which were actually left overs from my Steamee McPunk card.
Dies: Kaszazz Cogs, Memory Box Whimsical Flourish & Macarana Corner, Spellbinders Curved Rectangles
Other: Blackbird ColorBox ink, clock charm, metal spirals, Ace playing card, washi tape.

This card started with the basic sketch #6 from Poppy Sketches which included the harlequin pattern too, however as I was putting it together it quickly took on a life of it's own and morphed into something very different. As the central panel is still in line with the sketch, I decided to still enter it into the challenge.
