Steam Punk

Steam Punk is completely different to anything I've done before but I had some stamps that I thought might be on the right lines so thought I'd have a go and get some practice with embossing and inking techniques. I used script, cogs and clock stamps for the background and vintage photo, antique linen and walnut stain distress inks to both stamp the images add shading to the edges.  I stamped and embossed the globe, cogs and clocks some with clear embossing powder and some with gold.  The globe is matted onto a piece of Old World matt stack card which I embossed in the grand calibre with a circles embossing folder and tore the edges.  Finally I attached the 3 clock faces with some string. This was a whole Saturday afternoon job, hope this first attempt at Steam Punk fits the bill for the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge
