The Stampman ATC swap - February Steampunk

Have not joined The Stampman ATC Swap for a couple of months, seems there have been a few things I've been missing.   This month the swaps theme is Steampunk so joining in was a simple must.   The first two left and right in the picture were fairly striaght forward used a variety of stamps and colours on them including my little cogs and Sue's new dotty stamp.   Brayered them both using waterfall B&J, a bottle top filled with small watch parts and crackle glaze topped with a little copper colour perfect pearls stuck on one.   While on the other a little metal clip with a piece of string through it, air dry clay beads cover the string ends.

After several attempts at a third was begining to wonder if I'd manage a full set.   Been learning more about Zentangeling recently and it occured to me that an industrial theme combined with steampunk style stamps and some more watch parts might work.   Hope swappers will not be disappointed.

  7. Great ATC's Zoe, I'm sure no one will be disappointed to get them! Good to see you using my dotty stamp already! Apparently one of patty's ladies said that you can get a woodbark effect with the hilly side of the stamp too....not tried it yet though!
