Steampunk is Awesome. I’m lovin’ it. I used cardstock from my 2011 Steampunk collection as the background for Steampunk Marci (Item #5189). This is the third La-La Land image I plan to use on my two-page, pocket scrapbooking layout which I will be showcasing next week, if all goes well. I used the following Copic markers to color this image: BG72, BG90, BG93, BG99, C3, C5, E000, E00, E02, E87, R20, W00. W3, W5, YR21, YR24, YR31, YR000.

Being hooked on Copics means that I love to color images that celebrate stamping, especially with Copic markers. La-La Land’s Coloring Marcing (Item # 5166) fills the bill.
I stamped the image with Momento Rich Cocoa Dye Ink on Copic Blend-It cardstock. I plan to use her in the same pocket scrapbooking layout that I colored Top Hat Steampunk Marcie, so I adhered her to a 3” x 4” piece of Graphic 45 Steampunk cardstock and popped her Copic marker can with foam dots.
All in all, this project was fun to do and came together pretty quickly.

I haven’t posted in more than a month. I’ve completed projects, but my work table was such a mess that I couldn’t find anything. It took me a month, but now I have a clean workplace where I can spread out and get things done. It’s no accident that Top Hat Steampunk Marci is the first of these projects.
1. A subgenre of science fiction
2. An artistic style that develops from steampunk fiction
3. Happens with goths discover brown.
Steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era or American Wild West. It visualizes a future which employs steam power as a dominant energy source and fictional machines which operate off that power.
I love the steampunk style and have been looking for ways to incorporate in my design aesthetic. When I stumbled upon La La Land Crafts’ Steampunk Top Hat Marci (Item # 5190) I knew the time had come to move the project forward.
I stamped the image with Momento Rich Cocoa Dye Ink on Copic Blend-It cardstock. I cut her out and adhere the elements and her to a piece of Recollections 4”x6” piece of craft cardstock. I plan to add her to a Pocket Scrapbook page/project incorporating the Steampunk theme.
I used the following Copic Markers to color my girl: E00, E000. E02, E11, E17, E50, E53, E57, R20, W2, W5, YG0000, YG11, YG93, YG95, YR0000, YR21, R24, and YR3.
I used my Spellbinders Grand Calibur to cut the gears (Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets #S5-048) out of The Paper Cuts Black Licorice and the lattice with The Paper Cuts Jellybean Green (Heartfelt Creations Decorative Lattice Swirl #HCD 733). My background is Steampunk cardstock form Graphic 45, circa 2011.
