Steampunk Slinging & Shaking

How many times have I coloured up an image, then put it in my folder and it's just sat there for who knows how long?!  Sometimes I think it's just waiting for the right inspiration to happen before I actually make a card. This time it was Alyce at Kit & Clowder who gave me some inspiration. She's been making shaker cards to go with the last monthly class images. I haven't made a shaker for ages, so I immediately made a couple.  Not wanting to let shakers sit like I do with images, I thought of the perfect coloured image straight away and got a card made.  
The image I have used is the very awesome 'Lahla Steampunk Gunslinger' from Faery Ink. I am quite addicted to Amanda's images and they are often my naughty impulse buys! As she's a Steampunk Faery I had to add a bit of electricity to her wings.
