Steampunk Twinchie

The challenge theme over on the Small World of Inchies blog*
was to make an inchie or twinchie in the Steampunk style.

I created a twinchie (two inch square) as there were so many items I wanted to include.

Many of the images were found at The Graphics Fairy,
including the gentleman, moth, bicycle & clock face.

The steam train stamp & eye spectacles are from an Ephemera cd

The background was created using elements from a digital kit called Delicious Moments
from the Digital Scrapbook Place & a digital paper by The Angel Company.

Once printed out, the artwork was adhered to a mountboard base
& the edges were sanded.

I added Glossy Accents to the spectacles & train.

Then I attached cogs, screws & wire pieces from an old watch.

I enjoyed researching the Steampunk style
& seeing how I could create my artwork using what I had available.
