Sassy Studio progressive challenge no.3!

Tonight i have made number 3 in the progressive challenge to create cards using the images given using the theme advised.  For the third part of the challenge i was lucky enough to get an image of Steampunk Victoria.  39 people participated in the original challenge which dropped to 35 for the 2nd challenge, well here we go for the 3rd challenge

For this challenge i needed to use Steampunk Victoria to create a victorian or vintage creation.
For the challenge i printed off  a paper that i have had on file for some time now, and christened my Tim Holtz disress pad, i have never used the ink with a pad before but i think it came out well for a first attempt! I used 'old paper' ink and used it for the base card and to colour the star that i printed a sentiment onto.
I also used a Tim Holtz die cut that i bought a while ago, i simply had to have it and then never used it as i could never quite position it onto a card to look right.  I decided that this was the idea opportunity to use it on a card. 
I have started to pick my papers etc first prior to making the card and putting it all together and then colouring my image in as this way it all matches.  I did consider making this card into a christmas card but felt that as Victoria was holding a gun i would go for a batman and robin theme and do a star shape from the gun.  Promarkers were used to colour Victoria in and i also used promarkers to colour in some white flowers that i had bought, no hand made pics on this card i am afraid.  Too tired!

Card finished i took a final photo............. but hang on - can you spot the difference  between the next 2 pictures?????

 In my haste to finish my card, i had forgotten to colour Steampunk Victoria's eyes!
I have really enjoyed the last few days using the images that i have been given by Sassy Studios, and i am very gratefull to all at Sassy Studios for being given these images to use for this challenge.   I love the images and the cards that are on the Sassy Studio blog: and thank you for the lovely comments that you have been ginig me for the cards i have made.  My husband is the only one who really gets to see them and to be honest he says they look good but i dont think he really has too much of an interest in my cards!  That said - i think he quite likes the Steampunk images!!!!!! LOL!! Its really confidence boosting to receive positive feedback and i do really appreciate it.
