Steam Punk - Blocked Collage

Hello to Artistic Outpost readers...I have a book cover to share, that I made using the Artistic Outpost Steam Punk stamp plate...I love this set and it's versatility for masculine collage artwork.  I used techniques from Technique Junkies, Faux Metal using Tim Holtz Texture Fades, Pulled Glimmers with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and the AO stamped images were done using a Blocked Collage Technique masking off with  sticky notes and sponging Tim Holtz Distress inks. The ribbon at the bottom of my Book Cover is from the Bloom & Grow - Vintage Findings found in the Outpost Attic Findings. 
thanks for stopping by Artistic Outpost
