Guest Artist for Alpha Stamps

I was so thrilled when Alpha Stamps
contacted me a couple of months ago and asked me to be a guest artist for a special Steampunk Feature. Here's some of the projects I created with some of the goodies they sent me.
A Steampunk Airship constructed from a metal tin with lots of fun collage items, bits of metal, gears and such, I used velum to construct the balloon. O.K. A real balloon would have been much easier but I've never been one to do things the easy way. LOL.
A Fabric Address book. I made fabric transfers with the beautiful Victorian woman image and another from the filigree frame. All stitched together with Love and some vintage lace.

A leather cuff bracelet made with some Victorian Gentleman images that came on one sheet. I added one to each wooden tile and stitched them to the leather. added some brass finding that also came in the stash.
Taking Flight
Here's a close up of one of the jewelry pendants done with their cool Steampunk gentleman images complete with Gas mask. I set several pieces of metal findings into the resin for the perfect Steampunk feel.
How about a Few ATC'S, Alpha Stamps
will be having an ATC swap. You may want to get in on this one. Too cool!





And last but not least a couple more pieces of jewelry.
I hope you enjoyed my Tribute to Steampunk made possible by Alpha Stamps
