Its challenge time over at Top Tip Tuesday. 

This fortnight the theme is 'Monochrome' Which means use all of one colour or shades of one colour :)

Our sponsor this fortnight is the zany Kenny K and I'm already a big fan of his digi's so I was extra excited. 

As soon as I spotted Savannah Belle I had an idea of the colour shades I would use.

I do love Steampunk designs, I just wish I had more chance to do them or could do them better...hehe...But I still had fun creating with her, who wouldn't? She's gorgeous.

Savannah is coloured using Promarkers

I decided to use brown as my colour and have tried to use various shades and warmth's of brown throughout the image. I have also tried to keep all the embellishments and papers to different shades of brown too.

There is a little printed and cut banner and some dark brown embossed card that I have then enhanced the embossing, by using bronze guilding wax all over.

I made all of the embellishments including this large one in the bottom right corner. Its hard to see in the photos, but this has lots of depth as each of the cogs you can see, sits at a different level. I did this using paper cogs, that I stained with distress inks and my melt pot.
