Steampunk -Taking Flight


This was a fun one to do. I used the New Steampunk stamps fromOxford Impressions That's right a whole new sheet of NEW Steampunk images. Go check them out there Uber cool!!
Any who on to my card. Its my second try at a Easel card. I thought it would be perfect for the Airships. I used a sheet of acetate so they would look as if there really flying. This also fits in with Hels challenge atInk On My Fingers
Not birds but they still fly. LOL.
