Steampunk muse

I've got a pair of ATCs to share with you! My muse? This moodboard from Art Playground for their October challenge.

I was inspired by the colors and they immediately said steampunk to me! The dark tones with a touch of metallic shine. So I went wild!

I designed my own ATCs with flaps - they are so fun to play with! And they hide a surprise inside! The visuals are from Gecko Galz Dark Arts, Rusty Bucket, Tic Tock Cameos, and Painted Beauties.

Another muse was Seth Apter's baked textures. Rust, beeswax, patina - goodness! They turn cardboard into aged metal!

Waxes and embossing powders add metallic shine and enhance the steampunk vibe. And strong quotes tie it all together.

I'm in love with these and look forward to making more new designs!

I'm also entering these at Mixed Media & Art - they've got some mystery going on as well...
