Steampunk!

I was over at Sue's blog and saw that she had made some wonderful ATC's with a steampunk theme. These were for the challenge at Make My Monday, which is not one I have participated in before, but the theme interested me. I have only made ATC's once before a couple of years ago but thought I'd have a go!
The criteria is as follows:
This is the first Monday in September and that means a brand new theme and challenges. This month they have been chosen by Cath and her theme isSTEAMPUNK.
Steampunk is based around the Victorian era and tends to incorporate elements of science fiction and fantasy with futuristic innovations such as fashion, culture, architecture and art.
So that being said your first challenge is to create a STEAMPUNK ATC.
ATCs can be any medium, stamped or collaged however they must be 2.5" x 3.5". 

I used some old map backing paper for the base and then used various images from Kldezign to create my ATC. I distressed the base and images with Victorian Velvet and Black Soot and used promarkers to colour the images. I used foam pads to lift the images and stamped a postal mark from Darkroom Door. the ticket was also from KLdezign. I attached a circle of embossed foil with a brad to one corner. I enjoyed this challenge and may have another go at it:)




Thanks for looking and I love to read your comments;)

Great steampunk ATC - not something I've made for a long time either but it's a great theme and an excuse to get inky fingers.
