This week over at Make My Monday the challenge is to design a Steampunk ATC. I really love anything Steampunk so dug deep in my stash to find some watch parts - cogs, springs etc - which I haven't used for a few years when I used to design for Stampers Mall an American website.
I cut my base ATC at 2.5" x 3.5" and sponged the edges using Distress Inks. I then added the tag, which already had cogs etc on it, after I'd embossed it with a Tim Holtz e/f. I then embossed a small piece of pewter using the same embossing folder. From this I punched two photo corners using my EK Success punch and cut a strip to go across the centre of the ATC. I printed out the hot air balloon which was a free digistamp from the lovely Carmen at Beyond The Fringe Crafts - she is amazingly generous in sharing her fab creations.. I sponged with Distress Inks and added to the ATC. I then added various cogs, springs, wheels etc from my stash; an old pen nib and a watch glass. I then used Diamond Glaze on the hot air balloon.
I've got into Steampunk so much I have even managed to find a Steampunk Clock (on my side bar)!!! lol
