Steampunk

I decided to have a little fun with a steampunk card today. I used the sketch from the Critter Sketch challenge as the basis for my layout. All of the stamps used are from Artistic Outpost. Since the August challenge at Artistic Outpost is anything goes, my card fits right in. The Sunday Challenge at Ink on my Fingers is steampunk, so I'm right on target.
I started my card by embossing a metal foil sheet with the riveted metal texture fade (Tim Holtz). I used ginger and black soot alcohol ink to distress it.  I stamped and adhered the image panels and added a few gears and some number washi tape. And there you have my bit of steampunk for today.

Oh, I just love anything with those rivets embossed on it, and this is fabulous! The train is one I've been admiring for some time at AO, and it looks great here...
