Why Creep When You Can Soar?

Good Wednesday to you all! Today I am sharing a masculine tag using Industrial Backgrounds and Steampunk fabulous stamps!
I just love how these two stamp collections work so well combined together. The tag background was inked with Distress inks and then the gears were stamped on the background using the same colors (Brushed Corduroy and Peacock Feathers).
This powerful sentiment was stamped in black archival over the inky background and layered and the edges distress. Of course had to add a few metal gears. 
The airplane was stamped and fussy cut as was the Steampunk Gentleman, who was colored with Distress inks. I cut a little area around his hand to rest the sentiment against him.
The black panel tag background was cut larger and die cut with the "Steampunk" on the edge, embossed and highlighted.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you are having a wonderful day!
