Now you are either saying ' yay' or 'no way'!!! I must admit I said no way can I do this, I don't have any Steampunk stamps, but I did - I just hadn't used them for 'propper' Steampunk!
I chose to do a tag this time, (I'm quite liking tags these days). I started by using a Cogs & Swirls Creative Expressions Mask and I used a mix of Dusty Concord, Milled Lavender, Wild Honey and Vintage Photo DI's. I over stamped the Flying Machine and 'I can See You Girl' - (don't really know if that's her name) from IndigoBlu Grand Tour. I put an eyelet through one of her goggles, well it is Steampunk! The 3 Gents were stamped on a separate piece of card and after inking were attached with eyelets (to hid the end of the top embossing). Do you like my pen nib? I stamped the pen set, again from Tim Holtz, onto thin silver mirri card, cut out 1 nib and moulded it over the end of a paintbrush and attached with rolled up sticky dots to help it keep its shape, I think it looks quite real!
The Curiosity text is also TH.
Well that's my first 'propper' Steampunk card - I know a lot of folks are really into this and have some amazing stamps, but I bet everyone has something Steampunk, and we would love to see what you 'create'.
If you kneed some inspiration, then head over to FSC to see the 'creations' from the rest of the Stampettes, who have come up with some great interpretations.
Over at Rogue Redheads there is a challenge for Warm Tones for Gents, so I am going to enter this card there as I think it fits the bill.
I am also going to enter this card in the following challenges:
So Artful - Steampunk with Sepia/Earthtones
Rainbow Lady - Lets get Inky
Southern Girls - One for the Boys
Creative Craft Challenges - Distressing
Had a wonderful day yesterday, I went to a workshop by the very talented Jill Tuck (Mrs. Stampman).
Will tell you all about it when I have taken a piccy of my 'creation', and besides this post was long enough!
Thanks for looking, and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
