CHA Peeky

I love steampunk images. When Graphic 45 came out with Steampunk Debutante paper a few years ago, I was so happy. They have just came out with a NEW release of steampunk themed papers, called Steampunk Spells that has coordinating stamps from Hampton Art!

The collection is really a Halloween collection, but I used the steampunk hat image to create a birthday card. I stamped the image and colored it with alcohol markers. The birthday sentiment is from the Hampton Art/Ki Memories Celebrate Life set. The typewriter font was perfect for this card.

I sponged the image with some Graphic 45 Decades antiquing ink and some chalk ink to grunge it up a bit. I had stamped onto white paper and felt it was a bit too bright.

I added some gears and flowers to give the card extra dimension.

Thanks for looking! Stop by the Hampton Art Blog to see what is happening in the world of stamps!
