Steampunk

Sue's challenge over at the Tanda Teaser a couple of weeks ago was "Steampunk". It just so happened that I had just purchased the Stampers Anonymous Steampunk set designed by his lordship, Tim! So, since I was in the craft room this afternoon tidying up after yet another major aftershock ( a 6.0 magnitude earthquake), I decided to have a play with the set!!

I had a grungy looking base card that I stamped the three gentlemen on and embossed with Ultra Chocolate embossing powder. I then masked that image and overstamped in Rusty hinge a stamp that looks like a blueprint. I used a clock face from another set to stamp with walnut stain.
The gears were cut from Tim's gadget gears and stained with vintage photo distress stain.
The ticket is from a set of tickets and stamped with a sentiment from the steampunk set.

This was a fun card to make. I think there will be more steampunk soon...
