steampunk tag

I have no idea why I'm doing this. I'm not really enamoured with steampunk, and yet, i find myself creating this tag. Probably guilty justification for having all these dies and folders . . .

It's not the easiest thing to do when one does not have a single steampunk-related stamp! Fortunately Lord Tim came to the rescue with this :

 The airplane, clock face and globe images are from The Graphics Fairy. I've fashioned a chipboard gear clock of sorts and coated it with rock candy crackle paint, and attached with a brad. Some of the gears are also treated with the same, and others with glossy accent.

 Soar! is die cut and then topped with glossy accent. The background is embossed with sizzix TH and CB clockworks folders, using some old structural notepaper I found. I had a lavish time with DIs (antique linen, vintage photo and walnut stain), inking virtually everything in sight. ~ Ü ~

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm not much a fan of steampunk too but I have to admit I was amazed at the various steampunk creations I see such as yours. And I know it's not an easy job to do having to use various embellies, applying techniques and using tools for it.

Still great job on your tag! Thanks for joining us at Kaboodle Doodles!
