Left of Center 'Use Metal' with Rick St Dennis

Today is the very last fortnightly challenge at Left of Center.... watch this space!!! The theme for this fortnight is 'Use Metal' and we are delighted to be sponsored by Rick St Dennis.

I managed to enter last month's new challenge on the Sparkle and Glitter with Rick blog from Rick St Dennis and as a reward for doing so, had the joy of receiving the You're A Winner - Nyner the Little Monster image to use for this month's part of the Steampunk Challenge. So this is a bit of a double post!

I had a blast colouring up this little monster using my Promarkers and then added Vintage Photo, Mowed Lawn and Black Soot distress inks to the background and edges of the image.
I have used the Do Crafts Chronology papers for the background of the card and edged them with more Black Soot and Vintage Photo DIs. The black gears are Tim Holtz and the card is finished with black sticky pearls. The metal element to the card - although it could be a LOC entry! - is a brad in the bottom right corner. This says 'happy' on it and I have a few of these with different words that have been in my stash for a while - if anyone knows who made it, please let me know!!

I will enter this in the following challenges -
Sparkle and Glitter With Rick - Steampunk Progressive Challenge
A Step in the Dark - #4 Anything Goes
Time4Scrap - #41 Anything Goes

Thanks for looking!
