Why Creep When You Can Soar!

WooHoo it is another Blog Hop at Artistic Outpost and it is all about "Backgrounds, Typography or Sentiments."  I had such a great time working on this tag and I know you will love what all DT members have in store for you as well!   Gerrie, Lisa, Sue, Tracy, Linda, Alison, Terry (Me), Kate.
The background I created was inked with Peacock Feathers and Brushed Corduroy and the gears, from the Industrial Backgrounds set,  stamped in the same colors.  The sentiment was mostly inked with Peacock Feathers and shaded and gears stamped using Archival Sepia.  Both were given a quick spray of water! Some of the gears are Tim's and others are bits from my DH, which I inked with black alcohol ink.
The Steampunk Gentleman soaring to new heights was stamped in Black Archival and colored using Distress Inks.  I find that Tattered Rose is a perfect skin tone!  Both the Gentleman and Plane were obviously fussy cut!  I did a little slit at the man's arm to have him kind of resting on that awesome Sentiment, from Quotes and Quotables!
For the back black tag panel, I cut the edge using the Steampunk Gear, embossed and then highlighted with Opalite.  Added a tie using an old ham bag!!
There is still plenty of time to join in the March Referral Program and hopefully this Blog Hop has inspired you to pull out your AO stamps!  Thank you so much for visiting and have a wonderful Day!
