Color Blocked Steampunk GM7

This week the Grungy Monday challenge is Tim Holtz Distress Ink Color Blocking. I really like this technique and I feel you may see it again from me soon. I created the background using the technique. All of the stamps except the sentiment (Artistic Outpost) are from the Tim Holtz collection, Steampunk. I stamped the gentlemen and then masked them. I then used the catalog and the diagram stamps. The two gear are from the Idea-ology movers and shakers line. They were painted with silver antique Creative Inspirations paint. The pointing hand is also from the set of Steampunk stamps. What is it about the Steampunk look that makes it so much fun to use.
