Steampunk

Another little STEAMPUNK creation for The Stamp Attic using the new Inkadinkado STEAMPUNK set. Thought I would move away from the altered side this week and actually make a card. I must admit I really enjoyed creating a little more in the way of a steampunk creation and it is slowly becoming a favourite theme of mine at the moment.
My background has been coloured with Distress Inks aged mahogany and vintage photo and spritzed with water. I have added a metal element using some chicken wire, an idea I picked up from Sarah (thanks so much Sarah) which I feel fits perfectly for a steampunk theme. My background has been stamped with black Archival Ink using the image from Tim's STEAMPUNK set.
The balloon has been stamped in black Archival Ink from the new set from Inkadinkado and I have added the pointing finger to the top, again from Tim's set. STEAMPUNK is from Wendy Vecchi's STEAMPUNK ART.
To embellish I have added a Pen Nib from Tim's Idea-ology range along with Sprockets and steampunk embellishment (which is available in the shop but not yet on line), all coloured with StazOn timber brown ink to blend in with my background colours.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
