Steampunk #2

I now have very inky fingers having decided to have another go at the steampunk ATC challenge over at Make My Monday!! It's a strange thing with ATC's but it's almost as hard not to overload the card (I keep wanting to add more) as it is trying to create a CAS card:)
I used some lined Kraft card for the base and distressed it with Frayed Burlap and Black Soot. The stamps I used are from Paper Artsy that I received when I first subscribed to Craft Stamper and have never used them!! The compass is an image that I downloaded and printed out.
Thanks for visiting, please leave a comment so I can visit you:)

What a divine little art piece, Valerie. It is just incredible.

Thanks for commenting on my Neelix card. Isn't Helen Lawrence a doll for having made that digi for me?

Blessings,
Teresa

WOW! Val!! You're on a roll now girl! Your ATC is a fabulous work of art. I bet the guys in your family love it...I know mine would. I don't have any girls, so although my boys think my cards are okay, they would love it if I made something like this. Well done!! xx

Well you've certainly managed to put lots of 'bits' on this card - brilliant result. I bet lots of us have those Paper Artsy stamps from CS way back!!

Gosh you're really getting the Steampunk bug Val - another lovely ATC. It's great that we can make use of stash we either haven't used before or not used for a long time......... I agree it's difficult not to overload the piece!
