Make My Monday - Steampunk

Make My Monday has a new challenge

This is the first Monday in September at that means a brand new theme and challenges. This month they have been chosen by Cath and her theme is STEAMPUNK.
Steampunk is based around the Victorian era and tends to incorporate elements of science fiction and fantasy with futuristic innovations such as fashion, culture, architecture and art.
So that being said your first challenge is to create a STEAMPUNK ATC.

I recently bought the Steampunk Christmas stamp set from Chocolate Baroque, but otherwise I know nothing about this subject and I have never done an ATC!

So I did a little research, scoured through my stamps and came up with this.

Background is Adirondack Slate direct to paper.  Cogs stamp is Chocolate Baroque, Small Timepiece is Tim Holtz, Large Timepiece and Hot Air Balloon free with Craft Stamper  all stamped with DI Black Soot. Stamped a Cog, Timepiece and Balloon on a scrap with Versamark and embossed in silver, cut out and layered.

Thanks for looking, may have another go if I got time!

I love the mixture of colours you have used here - they provide a lovely foil for the metallic silver. I love the CB Christmas Steampunk set too but haven't had time to play with it yet.
