Rick's First Progressive Challenge

This week starts the FIRST progressive challenge for Rick St. Dennis.  Know what that means?  That means if you enter this challenge you will get a free image to use for the next challenge.  This will be a monthly challenge.  The theme this month is "Steampunk".  Rick Has some of the most awesome Steampunk images!!  I used an oldie but goodie called Steamee McPunk.  I made an easel drawer card.  I used a couple of my own handmade stick pins, added a "clock face" and a lock charm.  I also added some cheese cloth and some flowers and lace.  I colored her using some Metallic colored pencils by The Fine Touch (Hobby Lobby).

Be sure to head on over and enter the challenge at Sparkle and Glitter this month so that you can get the freebie image for next month!

Thanks for looking!
