This is my steampunk entry to:Fashionable stamping challenges, & crafting when we can,
The stamp used is from scrollwork stamps and the background is made using shaving foam and reinkers. The design is clean and simple which is unusual for steampunkary. Maybe I will do something OTT for the inside.

The images are coloured with flexi markers and copics markers. However I still found the colours too bright for grey pearl so I sponged weathered wood distress ink over the image, which worked well and married into the background of the card which is made with a Tim Holtz mask, distress inks and a my mind's eye script stamp. The eyes have been highlighted by glaze to make them stand out and look liquidy.
look forward to your entry.
also entering this into:

Smudger challenge -tag you're it - warm pearl

Is the frame on the left hand side not one of the most horrendous vomit inducing travesties of home decor? this is a before and after shot of a photo frame I transformed this weekend. This took a lot of coats of gesso, senca colour wash, hard rock candy crackle glaze and vintage photo frame distress inks.
The frame was purchased from the pound shop, yet again I fought my way through chavs and really hoped that my bag didn't split and the frames ( I bought two) didn't grown legs and scurry across the floor.
The stamps used are Tim Holtz Papillion and Indigo Blu Grand Tour 2.
