Steampunk #2 and a Sneak peek and Three Muses

As promised here's another little Steampunk ATC. If you see in the background theres a little sneak peek of a partial image of a Paris balloon from a new plate being released next week from I Brake For Stamps. I am so enjoying playing with this new style of art. Start saving all those old watch parts ladies! This also fits in with the The Three Muses challenge using Something Old Something New.

Playing with Steampunk!!! Queen Bee ATC

Well I just had to give it a try. Its all the rage right now. I'm having a blast playing with Steampunk. For those of you who don't know what Steampunk is. Its kind of a cross between Victorian meets modern mechanical. I have so much to share with you soon. I've been doing some Steampunk jewelry, ATC's and some Steampunk Birds in the near future. Its pretty cool. I'll just give you a little taste of whats to come with my Steampunk Queen Bee ATC. What do you think?
