Using my new, most favourite ever colour combination of Distress Inks, namely Peacock Feathers and Frayed Burlap I have made a Steampunk themed tag for this weeks Sunday Stamper challenge hosted by the lovely Hels over at Ink on My Fingers. Hels has used some fantastic looking Crafty-Embelies bits and bobs on her canvas, they look really great and one lucky person will win a £10 gift voucher to spend in the Crafty-Embelies shop. Fingers crossed.
As I've used my favourite bleached spot background on my tag I'm also entering this tag in Simon Says Stamp and Show Your Favourite Technique.
The tag is inked in my two fave colours and then given the splodgy bleached spot treatment, and then, using Coffee Adirondack Ink I stamped the blueprint and bicycle ad from Tim's Steampunk set as my background, plus I stamped the blueprint on a bit of tracing paper and wrapped this round the left side if my tag. Next I got out what I think is the first stamp I ever bought, It's Face Art by Wendy Vecchi and stamped the woman's face which is coloured with tattered rose DI applied with a water brush and Broken China and Barn Door Distress Markers.
My Steampunk lady's hair (or is it her brain sort of spilling out?) is made from an assortment of Ideology gears and sprockets, plus an old watch mechanism. The wings are from the Steampunk paper that Graphic 45 did a couple of years ago, and I have glued on a light bulb with some multi medium.
To finish off there are a couple of Ideology flowers, one with a little gear in the centre and the other with a Prima pebble.
Now I'm going to sit out in the garden with a cool drink, and my laptop and have a little wander around blogland, which is something I haven't done much of recently I'm afraid.
