The Game - Steampunk ATCs

Happy Thursday! I am home again after a much enjoyed vacation. We spent time in Las Vegas, Arizona and California. It was a wonderful trip, but it is always good to be back home. Today I have a set of ATCs to share with you. I made these for a swap at the Stamp Shack using one of the gears in the Steampunk SVG Set from LINDAY'S STAMP STUFF. I have had the "wind up man" stamp for a long time, just waiting for the right time to use him. I'm not even sure where I got him, and he isn't labeled, but I just knew I had to have him. :) The book pages are from a novel called Saratoga Trunk. ( I didn't read it, but it sounded kind of "steampunky".) LOL I used Tim Holtz distress inks to age the pages and added special embellishments bought on a trip to Texas. Here is a preview of the Steampunk SVG set:
Make sure you check out Thefrugalcrafter's Weblog for more inspiration, possibly a freebie, and links to the rest of Lindsay's Fabulous Design Team's blogs.
For more Steampunk Inspiration check out Suzi's Scraps. Suzi used the train from Lindsay's Steampunk Stamp Set to create a fabulous set of Steampunk ATCs for the same swap! Leave her some love when you stop by and let her know what you think. I'm sure she will appreciate it. Until next time, Happy Crafting Everyone!

I {heart} the Steampunk trend and love what you've done with Lindsay's stamps & cuts! :> I really like the soft colors with all the metal steampunk effects.

You've had many travels lately! I'm itching to get out of town...its been quite awhile for me. One of these days... :>

ya know, I just love that Steampunk set and I love your ATC's. I got my room finally set up (again) and have the Cricuit out and visible. And that is the first SVG I'm going to play with (then Lindsay's envelope svg's :-).
