Sunday Postcard Art – Steam Punk

Sunday Postcard Art have REALLY challenged us this week with Steam Punk. When I think of Steampunk, I think of the Wild Wild West movie, with Will Smith and Kevin Kline. Images of crazy, steam powered contraptions, gentlemen with manners and ladies in gorgeous dresses, full of spunk, are what comes to mind, along with clocks and gears and other exciting engineering things.

I was full of ideas and not really able to pull them all together, so I have two postcards to present.

I think I have pulled about half of my craft room out to find all the pieces to fit together for these two postcards.

Credits for “Around the World in 80 Days”
– Round world map (H4476) by Stylish Images
– Maps and Globe (39049) by Stamp Francisco
– Sextant from “Time and space” plate (46C) by Non Sequitur
– Large map stamp by Stamp Mania
– Balloon images from Go Make Something
– Couple image from.. I’m not sure (sorry!)
– writing by me (poor attempt at calligraphy)

Credits for “Measure”
– Compass rossette by Hand Print Stamps
– Cog by Gumbo Graphics Stamp Works
– Pesto and Espresso alcohol inks by Ranger
– Clock Montage from “Time and space” plate (46C) by Non Sequitur
– “M” stamp by Stampers Anonymous
– Steam pressure valve sketch from the Historic Naval Ships Association website
– Rule by Collections

With all of those credits, you can see why I have pulled so much of my stuff out.

I’m off to steam around the other blogs and see what you have been up to!



Make a Moo or Two – Vintage Love

I’ve ventured over to Make a Moo or Two this week for their Vintage Love challenge.

Background is a wash of walnut ink. Postcard images from Summerset Studios image CD. Collections border stamped in Brilliance Galaxy gold. L O V & E stamped in sepia ink, by Basic Grey. Various heart punches (who would have thought I had so many!?!). Found text. Cards edged in Adirondack Espresso.

These are the first Moos I’ve made this year – I had forgotten how fun they can be. I find the best approach is to use the length, as there isn’t much width!

Keep crafting,
