FSC - Steampunk

My Steampunk DT contribution this week is very masculine. But not so if you pop over to the Fashionable Stamping Challenges blog and see the fabulous inspiration from my great DT sisters.


I started by covering my tag with a page from a steam power book showing a plan of something!! Next a layer of white acrylic paint, then inked over with tattered rose DI. I then put it through the Steampunk embossing folder and covered the raised areas with Iced Spruce DI and weathered wood distress powder. 


The tickets were inked with iced spruce and old paper DIs then stamped with a TH steampunk stamp in walnut stain. The gentlemen are from the Tim H Steampunk stamp set, stamped in walnut stain and then embossed with clear EP.


Love this propeller shape with a nut in the middle of it. These were inked the same as the tickets and I used the TH steampunk set of stamps again.  

A few manly embellishments from the tool box and finito.

I look forward to seeing your creations in the challenge over the next fortnight.

Have a fun Sunday whatever you are doing.
