Hmmmmm.... steampunk is not really one of my strongest themes, but hey, that's what these challenges are for eh!! challenge yourself !!.. so I have joined in with this months  THE ARTISTIC STAMPER "steampunked"challenge.
The background started off as a cogs embossing folder print, where you put ink on an embossing folder then lay the paper on it to get a print of the design, but I didn't put it through the machine as I didn't want the paper embossed!!. It came out a bit rubbish, not too clear, so I got the TST steampunk mask and inked through it, then added a few paperartsy cogs stamps, the Artistic Stamper grid background stamp, then finally the carabelle studio Man and Bird stamp...oh and to finish off, the Indigoblu Quintessentially English stamp.
FRILLY and FUNKIE are also having a "show us your stamps" challenge, so I am entering it there too.


  1. He's a very dapper looking chap Jane and yes so very English :D Love your cogs and gears background. Good luck in the challenges you have entered & have a sweet weekend.
