It is Friday and here I am with another masculine card using the Steampunk totally awesome stamps! We are in the middle of January and there is still plenty of time to get inky with us and join in the "Show Us Your AO Art" challenge for a change to win a store gift certificate or to have your artwork showcased!
All of the front images were stamped using Black Archival and inked or watercolored. The Conductor's hat and jacket were inked using Vintage Photo, his face Tattered Rose and the bow-tie and hat band watercolored using Fired Brick. The background behind him was stamped in Dove Grey Stazon and then inked over and shaded.
I love this train! Once stamped this was watered colored using Faded Jeans for the sky, Crushed Olive and Shabby Shutters for the trees, Vintage Photo and Frayed Burlap for the ground and the train with Weathered Wood and then a combination of that and Black Soot. Added some extra paper layers and it was done.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope your weekend is wonderful!

Lve the lay out on this one Terry, a wonderful steam punk make and the fact it is not covered in cogs, the usual steam punk embellishment. It looks great just the way it is!

This has to be one of the best steampunk cards I have seen in many a day! I love the train and all the grungy goodness...
