Crafting musketeers mid-month inspiration

As part of team B it's our turn to provide some inspiration for this month's Crafting musketeers challenge 12 which is 'monochrome'. Please click on the link to see the other lovely creations made by members of team B and click here to join in the April challenge.

The challenge is being sponsored by Funky hand - the winner will receive a £10  download voucher.

So this is my design card. I used Steam Funk digital papers and sentiment kindly supplied by Funky Hand, adding some Tim Holz tissue tape, a piece of glittered trim and a tag that I made digitally with components from The Craft Studio 'tinkering with steampunk' CD.

This is also for:

Sandee & Amelie's steampunk challenge April: your favourite technique goes steampunk - I enjoy playing with digital papers and images 
Artistic inspirations 87: monochrome/anything goes
Bunny Zoe: monochrome
It's all about the vintage and beauty 66: shabby chic
PanPastel UK 11: pretty shabby chic
Tuesday throwdown 191: vintage/shabby chic
The stamping boutique 12: distress it
CD Sunday: something old, something new - 'Tinkering with steampunk' CD is old, as are the prima spacers, glitter strip and Tim Holtz tissue tape, but the Steam Funk papers and sentiment by Funky Hand are new
Lacy sunshine 21: make it feminine
Nutcrafters 66: go girly
Ruby's rainbow 77: ladies
One stitch at a time 208: use a digi
Digi choosday 15: use 2 papers (digital papers)
