Gettin' Steamy With Some ATCs

My mixed media ATC group has a steampunk theme going right now.  I love steampunk style but my muse was snoozing on the job.  After much struggle (and thanks in part to The Octopode Factory) these are what evolved.

I had to adapt with these.  I thought I had lots of wonderful little keys and clock hands in my stash but apparently I've used them.  I bought a clip art sheet from The Octopode Factory for the first two girlies.  I just added a little coloring with Copics and metallic paint.  I was inspired by these ATCs from Pawsitively Creative to pull out the Inka Gold (totally forgot I had that!).  I borrowed her metallic embossing technique on the first ATC up there.

I'm entering these in the Wicked Wednesday challenge "Girly Stuff". These are kinda girly in a fun and funky way.  :)

Thanks for stopping by today.  Wishing you a very happy Friday and a lovely weekend!
