Simon Says Show some Steampunk


So this is my contribution to Simon Says show some Steampunk. So what can I say about it?

I started by cutting a tag from Paper Artsy paper and then obscuring the print slightly with a white distress dabber. Then smooshed some distress inks over this.

The mannequin stamp is one I have had for years to which I applied metal wings to which were cut from the winged heart die, (yes my favourite material, tomato puree tubes) and then put through an embossing folder with black stazon applied ontop which catches the high spots.

I used a variety of other Tim Holtz dies and grungepaper to cut out clock, cogs and pennant. The clock face was rusted by the Tim Holtz method. The clock hands are from tomato puree tubes again. I also came across some lush embossing powders by Judikins called Jasper, Closionne, Garnet, Brass, Copper. Again an old purchase. I am not sure if they were the first embossing powders I ever bought?

Hope you enjoy my contribution as much as I enjoyed creating it.
