Challenge # 138 Easel Cards

Since I am at home for two weeks or more,with severe arthritis in my knee...I figured might as well try to work on some scrapping. I have been wanting to try my hand at some digital stamps and coloring them. I just got the Spectrum Noir markers a few months ago and now I am giving it a go.

Now what digital stamp? Awhile back I found Kenny K's Krafty Krew and I have been hooked ever since. I bought a bunch of his digi's now I get to give it a whirl.

So I took the time to enter this challenge. This weeks challenge is easel cards. I searched the web and found this tutorial at Card Making Magic, a Quad Easel.She has a lot of card making written and video tutorials and other crafty ideas. Go check her out:)
Hope you enjoy and please be easy on me, this is my first time at coloring an image. I think I did okay.

I used Paige Parasol for this and her pics are near the bottom:
Sentiment wobbles...see the action!

Some gears from Tim Holtz, Copper sheet embossed  using provocraft clockworks embossing folder  & gems from Walmart-Martha Stewart.
Sentiment found on internet. I just love Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory so this sentiment fits the Steampunk theme. Pearl beads from?

Here is Paige!! Recipe for her is last pic.

Steampunk heart from Jolee's and other jewel from?

Here it is closed up. Blue cardstock from DCWV solid stack, copper sheet from Walmart brand, Steampunk sheets- diamond sheet and collage from Hot off the Press.

Here it is opened up.
