Mixed Media Tag Steampunk Adventure

Hello, my friends, welcome back for the new challenge! This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our theme is "STEAMPUNK". The definition of steampunk is: a genre of science fiction that has a historical setting and typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology.  

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Brutus Monroe Steampunk Clear Stamp and embellished it with Prima Marketing Machine Parts Finnabair Mechanicals and Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Quotations Metallic Stickers.

I started this project with cutting the recycled corrugated cardboard into a size 8 tag and colored it with Distress Paints. I heat embossed the colored background using the clear embossing powder for the metal texture. 

On a piece of watercolor paper, I stamped the steampunk girl and other images. The images were colored using Daniel Smith watercolors then applied a layer of Tim Holtz Distress Micro Glaze for a glazed finish. 

I layered these cut images and some metal gears and embellishments and used heavy gel to adhered them on the tag. Some sentiments were added with Tim Holtz Quotation Stickers. I distressed and outlined the images, metal embellishments and edges of the tag using a black pen to finish off this project.
