Grungy Monday #2

I am at it again. Finding myself short on time and hurried on deadlines, so I am combining challenges once again. This is my take on Linda's "Grungy Monday #2", "SSSS, anything but a card", as well as "steampunk challenge" for OWSE. This was a fun one. I made the gears die into my stamp and followed Tim's instructions per the video uising the matte medium for resist. Scattered straw, wild honey, sage, and a bit of aged mahogany for the distress inks. Embossed my new Tim Steampunk images in black detail, added a gear under a Bingo marker with glossy accents, one of tim's corners, gear and spinner, filmstrip ribbon. Tied it with tulle and ripped the edges, added a couple of jump-rings and an old coin charm from my stash. My first attempt at Steampunk and I am now hooked. I love this style!!!
