A bit like the Three Musketeers, but more brainy!! This shadow box uses loads of Tim Holtz goodies. I've been pondering over the Steampunk stamp (bought it and then just didn't quite know what to do with it) for a couple of weeks. I'm entering this in Simon Says Stamp and Show a Hat, the new challenge for this week.
The frame is Shabby Vintage paper, inked with Black Soot DI and then using the blueprint stamp embossed in black. I then sanded away bits of the paper to create a more distressed look and glued to the frame.
The boffins are stamped onto grunge paper, and I then stamped the hats again, and covered these with Glossy Accents to give a more dimensional, shiny effect. The background is manilla cardstock, inked with Wild Honey, Barn Door and Aged Mahogany DI's, which I've then stamped with Vintage Photo DI and then added Copper Perfect Pearls to try and maintain the industrial look. The box is finished off with various bits and pieces of Ideology.
