A Man Among Boys!

Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday and thank you for stopping by today! There is only a couple of days left in January to join in the Monthly Referral Program, so get those AO stamps inky and join in!
I love this manly SteamPunk collection and this chap in all his sophistication! The background started with a piece of card stock which was crinkled up and inked over, then ran through a crimper in both directions and finally bleach stamped using the Industrial Backgrounds gears.
The gentleman and all images were stamped using Coffee Archival. Added a little extra cheek color and some water flicks to the train stop.
Enjoy the rest of January and I will see you next month!

Love how you've used the Steampunk stamps - that station is so gorgeous in sepia, brilliantly vintage - and I love the added metal words - fab!

The distressing, colours, flicking and crimping all go together so beautifully! Gorgeous stamps and style!
