Last week I had seen a post on Lynn Steven's blog Trash to Treasure Art of some steampunk atcs she made using some images I really liked and followed her link to Inka Heaton's blog Altered Artifacts in search of the images which I bought in her Etsy store here (I noticed another sheet this morning that I had to have and ordered). Last night I put these atcs together for an in-person swap I have today.
For the backgrounds I embossed using Tim's atc size gears embossing folder... then they were sprayed with Color Wash Sprays and Perfect Pearl Spray heirloom gold... highlighted the gears and edgess using either the silver or pearl Paint Dabber. I then built up from there.
On this first atc I colored the flowers with Distress Stains. There is some stamping in the background with Archival Ink. The words are a stamp (Inky Antics), stamped and cut apart. A tiny watch part on the girls hat over the printed gears and a little key that I think is 7 gypsies.
The stamps (light bulb on the background and Steampunk) are Studio 490 images. Glossy Accents on the goggles. Tim's Ideology gears and brad. Black Enamel Accents along the bottom.
For this one, again the lightbulb is Studio 490. It is stamped a few times on the background and then I have one stamped on Studio 490 Clearly For Art (this is awesome stuff). I used Archival Ink jet black for stamping, dried the ink, heated the bulb until soft and rounded the bulb area - Way Cool!!!! Some screen along the bottom. A couple of Tim Holtz mini gear die cuts colored with Distress Stain and the white dots are White Enamel Accents. Bright Ideas is hand written.
On this last one the black dots are made by sponging ink through sequin waste. 7 Gypsies metal along the bottom. Watch parts along the left side. A flat backed key (K&Company) and some ball chain that I antiques by sponging some black Archival Ink on it and heating it.
