Hi Everyone, our challenge this week is completely out of my comfort zone, so much so that I had to find out what "Steampunk" meant, yes of course I have seen it around and greatly admired what had been achieved,  I didn't understand it, but that is what a challenge is isn't it? 

Anyhow, this is my offering and I have to apologise for my efforts. I did what I think it means. Science fiction with Victorian tendencies.  I think!  Perhaps someone could correct me, if I am wrong.

I have used Luna girl steam punk numbers 1,2,3,8,9,10,11, and Stitchy bear sailship and paper numbers 1,2,3,4.  

I placed the images into the surreal world of Steampunk, imagining that the ship was going up into the new world through the frame, which is a PS Brush by Elbereth-de-Lioncourt and the man was asking the lady with the bike to fly off with him, he already is halfway there with the flight! shapes on his feet.  The clock represents time she doesn't have to go with him.  The balloon leaflet is hanging from the frame, again in the surreal world.  I used a few PS masks, blending options, overlays etc, I won't bore you with the the how to's.  I may go back to this and play more when I have time, I think there is so much more than could be done. I'll blog it when I do.

This was hard work, but when I got into it I quite liked the surreal world, where imagination can be set free outside the norm.

This may be out of your comfort zone Faith but you have created an amazing design, it looks fabulous and I think your interpretation of Steam Punk is spot on.

Never done Steampunk myself Faith . . .but admire others who do. This is a fantastic Steampunk card. Certainly Victorian and Sci Fi.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
