Up the Steamstalk!

Hi everyone, thank you for visiting.  Today I am sharing my contribution for SanDee and Amelie's Steampunk challenge, which this month is Fairy Tales into a Steampunk world.  So, without further ado, I present - the Steampunk Beanstalk! 
 
The background was coloured using the same technique as  for Tim Holtz's April tag, so I won't go into details - Tim's done it much better than I ever could, after all.  The rest of it is just die-cuts (Docrafts gears and Spellbinders foliage) and card coloured with Gilder's paste.

Love your 'Tim' colour combo here Keren, and the mix of cogs and leaves is genius! Hugs, Jenny x

What a brilliant idea, Keren!

I immediately recognized Tim's distress paints background technique which you really rock!

And the steamstalk looks awesome! A great tag with a wonderful artsy approach to the challenge!

Thank you so much for joining in with us at SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges!

Hugs

I really like your beanstalk, the colours, the texture... What I also like is your subtle fnny side as can be seen in your introduction to the beantag, the very humorous quote in the upper left corner of your blog and our profile... It all made me smile! Thanks for sharing!
Greets,
