Aussie notecard swap March
Aussie notecard swap time and the March theme was Steampunk. So gathered all my steampunk appropriate bits and pieces and the Tim Holtz district warehouse stamps.. Distressed edges lots of walnut stain and started scrunching paper soaked with water for the first layer. I had already stamped a world map on it, so it bled and went all just how I wanted it too, streaky and old looking.. Stamped some card stock with a different map stamp and then the wonderful steampunk 3 men with the hats went over the top of that in brown ink. Its handy having a hubby with lots of washers, so tied one of those on with some string over a punched out gear. More stamping, distressing and machine sewing around all of the edges.. Added a gear from the Tim Holtz Ideology collection and a metal key from K & C company. Added some brads and a paper clip so just a bit more metal. So that was a lot of fun. I am going to enter this in the following challenges Flonz craft Anything goes Simon Says stamp blog Monday challenge Journey Have a great day Sandy :)
