MAWTT - Challenge 143 - Va Va Voom (Sexy Ladies/Men)

Good Morning all! Hope you are all having a good week! it's a shame the weather has gone a bit chillier - but perfect for crafting and as it's Thursday again - time for another wonderful challenge over at.....

Moving Along With The Times

The lovely Shell is our hostess this week and she has chosen the fab theme of

'Va Va Voom!! (Sexy Ladies or Men)'

Ooh er, matron!!! - LOL - yes here at MAWTT we are going a bit risqué this week!! so we want to see sexy ladies or sexy men. Lots of fab images out there for this theme!  

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous Kenny K !!!!!

who are giving a very generous prize of  5 Digi Images!!! from their store!! Wow! what a fab prize!!

I have chosen to use the fab KennyK image - Scarlett West and thought I would go with a Steampunk Theme. Isn't she gorgeous!!  The amazing paper is designed by Celina Di Pisa and produced by Rayher Papers - I've had it stored safely away for about a year and it took SO much courage to cut into it!!! I've not put too many embellies on because I didn't want to cover up the paper!! I've also used a larger card blank (8 inches) to show off the paper. 

The 'Taurus' sentiment was made on computer - the card is going to be for a Taurus girl who is into Steampunk!!

Colouring Medium: Promarkers and Flexmarkers:-
Putty, Sunkissed Pink, Antique White, Champagne,Cocoa, Caramel, 
Warm Grey 1 2, 4 
Gold Metallic pen for coat buttons
Star Dust Stickles 

I've zoomed in here and you might just be able to see the sparkle on her bodice and underskirt and the smoke! Lots of fine details on this image and so I had to use my Ultra Fine Nibs.

I've decorated inside with a Scrapbook layout. It's a Set called "Melt My Heart" from Digital Scrapbook Place. Sorry about the photo - the sun was streaming in when I took it and I was too tired to do it all again!! I arranged the Sentiment inside the Cog and it says Have A Wonderful Birthday!

I do hope you can hop on over to MAWTT for more details of the challenge and to check out my Teamies wonderful creations this week .... you will love them all !!! and don't forget to check if you were a winner of our last challenge! :-)

Thank you for all your lovely comments! they always brighten my day :-) 

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges:-

Divas by Design - Challenge 29 - 'Anything Goes' ends 10th April 2012
Ooh La La Creations - Challenge 102 - 'Vintage' ends 15th April 2012 

Not long until the weekend now! I am SO tired at the moment that I think I might end up sleeping the whole of Easter!!!!! although I might be tempted out of my sleepy hollow for a little chocolate on Sunday!!! LOL 
Anyway, I would like to wish you all the best and a very Happy Easter! 
Fingers crossed for a little bit of sunshine!! 
Take Care!
Love n Hugs
