Artful INKables challenge!

Here is a card I made for the Artful INKables challenge. You are to use red, white and black on your card. I used kraft as my base (thought this would be okay since it was a neutral!) I stamped my image on watercolor paper and colored with my SU reinkers. The image is mounted on black and dusty durango cardstock.

The image is from one of the newly released sets, Steampunk Sarah.  I {heart} this set!  It is wonderful to color and different from the other girly stamps out right now.  I didn't really know what steampunk meant until Kristen shared the definition on her blog:

Steampunk Definition: Steampunk is a sub-genre of fantasy & speculative fiction, set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used. It may denote fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells & Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer, occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk follow an alternate history-style look at “the path not taken” when it comes to technology. It also celebrates the mechanics of something rather than hiding it under a sleek exterior.

Pretty cool, huh?

In case you don't remember, here are the details of the challenge! Hope you can play along!
