Steampunk!

It is "Steampunk" all the way at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and the design team has some punky inspiration for your viewing pleasure!  There is always a little prize from Cottage Crafts, so won't you join us for a new stamping adventure in the world of Steampunk?
When I started my DT tag, I realized that I don't have a large selection of "Steampunk" stamps, but Tim Holtz came to the rescue!  The tag background was Distressed Inked with Age Mahogany, Rusty Hinge, Weathered Wood and Tea Dye, then I stamped the background with Black Archival and embossed it with a large Sizzix gear embossing folder.  Inked over the raised areas with Vintage Photo, Distressed the edges and inked with Walnut Stain.  I inked another piece of manila paper with the same colors and stamped the guys with Black Archival, fussy cut those boys and did the same inking with a piece of tissue paper, torn the edges and shaded with Walnut Stain.  The metal pieces were colored with Terra Cotta and Ginger alcohol inks.  I added a few old watch gears and chain with Glossy Accents.

Since Simon Says Stamp and Show "Anything Goes" is still going, so will this tag!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
