Men Only For Simon Says Stamp and Show

Time for the weekly dose of Simon Says Stamp and Show and this week we would like to see your Men Only creations.
I have enjoyed making chunky ATC' so much lately that the MEN ONLY challenge allowed me to indulge once again in these addictive forms of art.  This weeks piece has been adorned with stamped images from Wendy Vecchi's Steampunk Art and Tim's Steampunk set. The ATC has been coloured with Distress Stain Vintage Photo and all the background pieces coloured with Distress Ink Vintage Photo and Aged Mahogany. Each ATC has been spritzed with water to give the splatter effect. Embellishments include Idea-Ology Sprockets, Fragments, Memory Frame, Corners and a 7 Gypsies Knob.
Both sides have had chicken wire added for that masculine touch an idea picked up from my fellow team member Sarah. Vintage spools have been added to the base of my ATC, again coloured with Aged Mahogany and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I love this sentiment from Wendy Vecchi's set and again perfect for this weeks challenge.
My dashing gentlemen have been added to square Fragments and added to the side of my ATC, adding a piece of metal for the eye piece, again adding to the masculine feel.
This side has a piece of card added coloured with Distress Inks and stamped with Tim's Steampunk background stamp along with the lightbulb from Wendy's Steampunk Art. To complete I have added a steampunk embellishment from my stash.
The top of my ATC has been adorned with a knob from 7 Gypsies, some tiny tiny lightbulbs and a rusty key.

Pop over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and take a look at my fellow team members they have created some inspirational projects and remember there is also the chance to win a $50 prize from Simon Says Stamp.  I always look forward to seeing your creations each week.


Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your week.  Tracy x x

Four sides and a top just chocked full of wonderful vintage images and textures. Gotta get some of that chicken wire too - LOVE IT! Wonderful extra embellishments like the tiny light bulbs - all make it so interesting to gaze at. Terrific take on this week's theme.

Hope you have a great week.
