Ink It Up at Left of Center

This week at Left of Center we want you to get messy! Get your inks/dyes/paints out and Ink It Up! Interpret this anyway you please and have fun doing it. Go mainstream or get your dark side on!
Our sponsor this week is SLS Lines and I've gone LOC for my project today. I have coloured a Day of Dead type lady with Promarkers adding Glossy Accents to her eyes and Star Dust Stickles to her flowers. My DP are from DCWV Eek-a-Boo Stack and I've added black lace from my stash. The Floral Oval is a Spellbinders die and the 'Trick or Treat' was cut using the Cameo. I've finished with some matching purple Candi.
Thanks for looking!

2 ATCs and a Fatpage

Earlier this month I signed up for a Fatpage and ATC swap on the Smeared and Smudged Facebook group and decided to use my Lelli-bot Crafts stash to create my swaps. The theme for the ATC is Steampunk and for the Fatpage - Leather and Lace. They both have ended up with a similar Steampunky look and I've used papers and stamps from the Lelli-bot Crafts Steampunk range.
For my ATC Background and panel on the front of the Fatpage, I covered some card with Silver plummers tape. I ran the card through my Cuttlebug using a Tim Holtz Alterations cogs and gears embossing folder.  I then added Ranger Alcohol inks in Meadow, Stream and Eggplant to the embossed panels. To distress it slightly I've then rubbed black ink direct from the ink pad.
For the embellishing of my ATC's I've stamped some of the Lelli-bot Steampunk stamps and coloured them using Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord and a blending tool, then fussy cut them.
 I finished the ATCs by adding brads and then using Gilding Flakes around the edges.
I have fussy cut more stamping for the front of my fatpage and added some HOTP words. The right edge has lace and teal beading. My Fatpage and one ATC are going to the same person so I attached the panel on 3 sides with 2 layers of 3D foam, this allows the ATC to slot in to the right side of the panel.
For the reverse side of the fat page, I stamped the Steampunk dress onto white card and twice onto one of the Lelli-Bot Steampunk papers. I've coloured the manequin with Peacock Feathers and Walnut Stain DI. The dress was fussy cut and layered.
I've added more lace and beading on this side too. For the panel, I've used a sheet of the Lelli-bot paper and used more of their stamps and gilding flakes for the background. When I send this to the recipient, I will add mine and the swap info to the top right corner.
I would like to enter my projects in the following challenges -
Lelli-bot Crafts - #1 AG June
Allsorts Challenge - #316 Use a Stamp
Open-Minded Crafting - #39 Vintage (Hoping Steampunk counts!)
Simply Create Too - #88 Old/Vintage (hoping Steampunk counts!)
