Steampunk ATCs

The Viva Las Vegastamps Facebook group is having a steampunk themed ATC swap this month.   When I think of steampunk I think of metal and gears and I remembered this cool VLVS stamp in my stash, Worn Clockface.  Love this stamp, but I hardly ever pull it out.  Today was the day!

I had some cool papers that I had already cut to ATC size which made this project really quick and easy.  The metal border was made using flashing tape over cardstock and then run through an embossing folder.  I grunged it up with some black acrylic paint.

The gears were cut from black cardstock and faux-metal'ed with Viva Decor's Inka Gold in graphite.

I googled time quotes and thought this one was perfect combined with the guy's shadow on the stamp. 

How convenient!  The VLVS blog's challenge for July is also steampunk.  Check it out HERE

Hope your week is off to a great start.  Thanks for stopping by!
