Steampunk Art

Great to be back and a Happy New Year to all, cannot believe we are in the middle of January already.  I have decided on a  little steampunk creation this morning for The Stamp Attic using Tim's Steampunk set and the Weathered Clock die.
The background is a thick piece of card covered with torn paper from an old book adhered with Studio Matte Multi-Medium. When you are adhering the pieces to the card add a few random brush strokes of the medium to the top of the text as when you apply the ink it will resist the medium and leave white areas which adds to the interest in the background.
The background stamp from the Steampunk set was stamped with VersaMark ink onto the torn paper and Detail Clear Embossing Powder sprinkled over the top. Distress Ink brushed corduroy was then added over the top of the embossed areas and as you can see these areas resist the ink and give a fabulous background. I cut the Weathered Clock from thick card and coloured with Distress Ink brushed corduroy, adding black soot to the edges. Clear Rock Candy was then added randomly to the top of the Clock, making sure that some of the areas were not covered.  Once dry I added more brushed corduroy Distress Ink and the areas with no Rock Candy applied appears darker, adding to the grungy feel of my piece.
The dashing gentlemen were added to Fragments along with areas from the background stamp and these were then added to my card. To complete I added Steampunk Art from Wendy Vecchi's Steampunk Art set.
