Steampunk Chunky ATC.............

.............for my next DT piece for The Stamp Attic using the new Steampunk stamps from Inkadinkado.
My chunky ATC is cut from a piece of wood and coloured with Distress Stain Black Soot. I have then cut an ATC from thick grey board using the ATC & Corners die and added 7 Gypsies Paddington paper to each and again to the side sections. I have added silver brads down one side, adding black ink with my fingers to dull down the silver a little. The balloon has been stamped onto white card with black Archival Ink, stamping the top section of the balloon twice to give dimension. The propeller has also been stamped onto white card, cut out and added to the top of the balloon. Before adding the ATC's to the chunky piece of wood I added cogs to both sides cut from black card using the Mini Gears movers and shapers die.
The second side is decorated with further images from the Steampunk set from Inkadinkado, one image being added to a Fragment Charm, again to give dimension to my piece. I have added small watch parts to the fragment along with a Game Spinner and Sprockets dangled from the fragment charm.  To complete I have added a mini Light Bulb to the bottom edge.
To one side I have added a key cut from grey board using the Hardware Findings die. The key has been coloured with a silver Paint Dabber with a little black ink added to the top.
The opposite side has the lock added, again cut using the Hardware Findings die and coloured in the same way.
I have added recycled watch parts to the top, coloured with a silver Paint Dabber and added a Tattered Banner along with STEAMPUNK printed on my computer.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend. Tracy x x

Fantastic! So many wonderful details and the black & white color scheme makes such a strong statement! The cogs extended out from each side add such drama and give such an interesting silhouette! Love it!
