Steampunk Birthday

Our challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is called STAMP IT.  We want you to create vintage or shabby chic cards that have rubber stamping on them - no digi stamps.

I made this steampunk card for this challenge.  I found the papers online and I think they are from The Teapot Lady but I didn't identify them well enough in my files so I apologize if I have given the wrong artist credit. All the stamps are from a Hampton Arts set called Time Flies and have been stamped using Black Archival Ink (Ranger) and then the fussy cut stamps were sponged with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink (Ranger).  A Tim Holtz die was used to make the swirly edge and then it was sponged with Crushed Olive Distress Ink (Ranger).

I found the quote online and then sponged it with some Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive Distress Inks (Ranger).  The metal gears and clock hands are from Bead Landings.  The wing was hand cut from metal foil tape stolen from my husband, textured using some metal working tools from Walnut Hollow and then inked with Terra Cotta and Butterscotch Alcohol Ink (Adirondack).

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Papercraft Star - Use a Stamp
Cards und More - Add Some Metal
Crafts 4 Eternity  - Wonderful Wings
Stamping with the Dragon - Steampunk
