Crafts 4 Eternity - Steampunk

Oh lordy - I'll start by admitting I had no clue what "steampunk" even was...had to do some research and learned a few things along the way. OK, here's the fun information on the challenge and below are some tidbits on my creation!!

One randomly selected winner will receive  4 images from their fabulous collection.

This week Crafts 4 Eternity would like you to share any project with a Steam Punk theme. So come on, join the fun!!
This bike image was purchased from Etsy, isn't it adorable? It was actually printed on Copic XPress It paper - pure white! I distressed it significantly with Vintage Photo and Frayed Burlap distress inks.
I colored some modeling paste with Espresso dimensional pearls and used Tim Holtz's faded dots stencil for the background then I litterally 'threw' on some chocolate glitter mist - GREAT random pattern. I distressed the edges with ink and with a paper distressor for those frayed edges.

Last additions were some gears from Tim Holtz, a couple wood veneer pieces which I colored with Copics and a little sticker which says "travel"; the inside says "enjoy life" within the circle you see.  Thanks for stopping by; hope you enjoyed my venture into the steampunk realm!! :D
