Steampunk Gentlemen

For this weeks creation for 100 Proof Press using Large Hand Holding Blank Card and Gears.
I embossed the background of my card with a stencil and coloured with Distress Ink vintage photo. My hand has been stamped with Archival black ink and had the gentlemen from Tim's Steampunk set added to the centre, again the edges have been aged with vintage photo ink.
I added a panel to the top of my card stamped with the Gears and again aged with vintage photo ink and the edges distressed with the distresser tool. STEAMPUNK ART added to the top seemed the perfect fit along with some cogs sent to me as a gift from Retro Cafe Art (Thank You). A little Idea-ology completes my creation.

Enjoy your weekend. Tracy x x
