It's time for another challenge over at The Fashionable Stamping Challenge. This one is a first for me as this time we would like to see your Steampunk creations !
I have to be honest, I really didnt' know where to start with this one ! That's 2 challenges in as many days that have had me stumped ! So, after browsing the internet for some inspiration and asking my Mum if she had any rusty washers ! I decided to keep it simple and do a tag. I used the Spritz and Flick technique on the background and I embossed part of the tag using a Tim Holtz EF. The motorcycle stamp is from the Artistic Outpost Diesel Punk stamp set. The hot air balloon is a B Line stamp.
The main image is from the same Artistic Outpost stamp set and is stamped onto Speciality Stamping Paper then I've used Tim Holtz Distress Markers to paint it. I then blended DI around the image as it looked far too clean ! The clock face is a Tim Holtz stamp which I've stamped onto metal then distressed with black acrylic paint and added a spinner. I stamped the Diesel Punk words from the Artistic Outpost set and then cut out an arrow and used the Spritz and Flick technique again. The Speed Limit sign is also from the Diesel Punk stamp set and I wound some wire around a thin paint brush to make the spring and attached it to the tag using 2 eyelets. Last, but by no means least, are the fabulous, rusty washers donated by my Mum, who doesn't bat an eye any more when she receives random text messages asking if she's got things like rusty washers !
I hope you get chance to join us and make sure you hop over to the main blog to check out the fab work by the DT.
