All about the Butterflies.

Hi everyone it's time for Make My Monday Steampunk, mid week motivation.  I used Graphic 45 steampunk papers, Dezinaworld digis (butterflies)  and a cupcake holder. I hope you join us with this fun theme. I've given you  some Steampunk definitions at the bottom of this post.,there are loads, I tried to find the ones suitable for crafters! but my time was limited :) you may know/find a better one, please share it if you do :)

 This is a fabulous Sreampunk digi  image from June of Dezinworld fame, printed onto glossy photo paper and cut out.


  The white butterlies have been cut from a cupcake holder. I cut off the bottom of the "skirt" from the main image off the gorgeous Steampunk lady, then repositioned it so that it peeped from under the flowery frame.

A quote

“To me, it’s essentially the intersection of technology and romance.” – Jake von Slatt

 Steampunk is an aesthic and a subculture based around the idea of alternative history and fantasy versions of the past. It is Victorian-inspired and influenced, with a heavy emphasis on clockwork gadgets, steam power, airships and other steam-age technologies, all with a science fiction twist. Steampunk costumes and accessories tend to include Victorian-style items such as top hats or corsets, along with lots of straps, goggles, leather and brass -- and the ever-present clockwork.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Another super steampunk offering - thanks too for the definitions and I'm sure many hours could be spent researching this (if only there were more hours available)!!

This is stunning.
I absolutely love when Steampunk has a feminine style to it.
The addition of the butterfly wings is so gorgeous.

Oh Wow! This is a real beauty Sue. Fabulous colours and images. I knew I was saving that cupcake holder for some future craft use, lol! I had in mind a stencil but cutting it up is a great idea!
