Steampunk Amelia ATC - Forever Night DT

altered in Photoshop Elements
Original ATC
I created this card for my DT piece at Forever Night Creepy Challenges. The Challenge is #60 and the theme is "Steampunk" or "Anything Goes". The challenge is being sponsored by Sassy Studio Design. Check out the site for rules and prizes.

I used the sponsors digital stamp for this challenge called Steampunk Amelia. I colored the image with colored pencils and blended with mineral spirits. I used some black chalk to grunge it up a bit. The ATC is embellished with two gears and a silver pearl. The bottom photo is the original and the top photo is altered in Photoshop. Which one do you like better?

I hope you have been inspired to join the fun at Forever Night Creepy Challenge and submit a creepy project of your own. Also, please leave some love for my fellow design team members.
