Steampunk Love



I mixed some steampunk with a little love. Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week is Steampunk and the Fashionable stamping challenge is Tags.  I mixed them together to make a Valentines Tag. 
The little heart and clock is from the Artistic Outpost Oz Collage.  The banners and clock are from the Artistic Outpost Whimsical Melange plate. 

The background recipe for the tag and hearts: 
  1. Spray yellow and pink glimmer mist on manilla tags. (2 different ones)
  2. Emboss using embossing folders. I used a mix of the gears, bingo, and numbers folders. 
  3. Smear embossed area with versamark watermark ink pad. 
  4. Heat emboss using Aged Gold and Aged Silver embossing powders from Stampendous. 
  5. Edge the hearts with black marker. Edge tag with black cardstock.
The banners received a similar treatment but instead of a embossing folder they were stamped with the clock face and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. 

Hope your week is off to a good start!
