A Man Among Boys

is what my steampunk guy is! I've been wanting to enter the Steampunk challenge at Sandee and Amelie's for ages, and I've finally got around to it! The challenge this month is to alter a playing card -I had the choice of either the 9 of clubs or the 7 of diamonds - goodness knows where the rest of the pack is (not that it's any use now anyway lol)
It's been painted in TH Distress paints, you know, the ones I didn't want, and wasn't going to get - hmm they accidentally fell into my basket...
All of the stamps are from the Artistic Outpost Steampunk plate. My manly man has been stamped with Versafine onto tissue paper and coloured with pencils. I do love this ink even though I always end up covered in it.
Lot's of chipboard bits and pieces stuck down with Glossy Accents and job done (and a lot of fun it was too)
I'm also entering this into the Artistic Outpost May referral of Anything Goes,
Fashionable Stamping  which is Alter It, and
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Favourite Ink

Thanks very much for looking and enjoy your day xx

  13. First of all I just had to become a follower - some friends of mine follow you too I see. Sue the Iron - that name alone makes me smile and your picture - well I must say you have a very contagious smile. Your card is delightful and you say it was done on a playing card? Your creation looks great!!!
