Steampunk - "anything but a card"

Mmmmm....anything but a card?  I thought easy peasy as cards are not something I churn out easily much preferring to use alternative things, like old frames, books, canvas etc.  HOWEVER when I have to do something different I cannot think ..... maybe I have exhausted my ideas?  So Make My Monday this week wants anything but a card and in a steampunk theme too...

Here is my trio of tags ........

Male images are courtesy of Land of Nod Studios ...think these are just fab.  The "eccentric" words and airship are courtesy of my Make My Monday teamie and Cubby Hole comrade Suzi B - thank you - you're a sweetie pie (dont say anything but Suzi B has far too many stamps just for one crafter lol ....only jesting!) x


Papers used in the background are a mixture of Tim Holtz and Kaisercraft.  Faux metal panels have been added along with Paperartsy stamped images.  To make the images pop I have gone round with a mixture of black and white charcoal pencils..


I am entering my trio of tags into the

Artistic Stamper - "Numbers" Challenge 


Simon Says Stamp & Show - "Men"

This is the last week of Cath's Steampunk challenges so I hope you can join us at Make My Monday.  I shall be back on Wednesday with the Mid-Week Motivation piece for Jacqueline - it could be interesting as I forgot I was suppose to do "instructions" and didnt take any photos for the tutorial ...whoops - what can I say?

This is just fabulous Suz and I love the way you made the images pop too - might have to steal that idea as it works so well.
Love those faux metal panels and the colours too.
Hugs, Fliss xx
