What's the Point?

The point is you should join us on the Meljen's Designs challenge blog.  Our theme this week is to use something pointy on your project.  It could be a pin, a star, or anything that has a point!

I used the new image, Steampunk Girl and colored her with Copic markers.  Her gold accents were colored with Copics first and then I colored over them with a gold Copic Spica pen.  You can't tell in the picture, but they have a lot of sparkle to them.  I used sprocket gears from Tim Holtz and found the one with the pointiest spokes to fit the theme.  I embossed a piece of Core'dinations cardstock and sanded it so the embossing would show.  I bought the embossing folder ages ago and never used it, but it was perfect for this card!  As my hubby always tells me, "It will turn up in something!"  The clockwork face from Tim Holtz finished it all very nicely.  I am not sure what I will use this card for, so I didn't add a sentiment.  My sister is angling for it to be her birthday card!

Once again, I primarily used scraps on my card!  The only new piece used was the Core'dinations cardstock, and that was from a small stack so there weren't scraps left over.  Even the lace was a scrap from a previous project that was still laying on my table.  I was trying to use a different style of lace and saw the scrap laying there.  I plopped it on my project and it was the perfect size and style!  Love when that happens!

So go find some pointy objects and carefully add them to your projects!  We would love to see them.
