Steampunk and Stampotique

Hello all and thanks again for coming by the blog, I'm blessed to have so many wonderful followers and I'm so happy you stopped by
This week over at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog the wonderful Kathi has chosen our theme and she picked
Steampunk!! I love steampunk so hooray, Love this challenge.
I hope you will join in with us and try your hand at the new challenge.

For this challenge I chose to use Stampotique stamp

Moth Fab - By Artists Jill Penney and Daniel Torrente

This is one of those "oldie but goodie" stamps, I love this stamp and she is one of my "go to" Stampotique stamps

For my background I used an oval template (just a piece of paper that I cut into an oval) I knew I wanted the card to be at least as big, if not bigger than my stamp and then I went to work
I used distress ink/tool to color the outside of my card

Then I used a stencil and black distress ink to create my gears
Meanwhile the whole time leaving the center of my card white

I stamped my stamp onto another sheet of paper and colored her and cut her out. 

For the numbers I used one of Tim Holtz dies and black cardstock

This was a fun challenge and I just love using two of my favorite things together, steampunk and Stampotique


  1. Moth Fab would look fab absolutely anywhere, Claudine, but I look the steampunk "temptress" look you have given her today. Love the gears in the background. Lots of creativity here today!

  2. I was playing with Moth Fab for the first time the other day and time did fly!!
    Great work Claudine,
    Big hugs xx

  3. What a fab quote you have put with her !
    Great steampunk frame round your card!

  4. Love the card Claudine. Now I know why I never have enough time! Thank you,

  5. Love your steampunk piece!
