Steampunk...ish!!

Hello!

It's time for another Rhedd and Rosie challenge, and this time we would love you to make something 'Steampunkie'!  We are sponsored this time by Rick St Dennis, and he's offering 3 digi images for the
winner.

 

Well, I've never made anything remotely like steampunk before, so here's my best shot using one of Rick's images......


I used distress inks to colour the tag, then stamped cogs and numbers from Visible Image's Time after Time set over the tag.  I also used a mask with cogs on it down the left side.  I coloured the image with Inktense pencils, they are lovely to use!
I'm entering this in the Make it Monday challenge.
Hope you are all keeping snug in this wet and dismal British weather, such a shock after our hot summer....
Thanks for visiting, hugs! xxxx
