Second week in Steampunk Month at Make My Monday

... and the challenge this week is ..
(use any colour as your main then shades of that colour)
 As you can see for this card I chose shades of brown using different shades of brown card and brown ink...
 I used old shower curtain hooks hanging from copper and silver coloured eyelets to hold the sentiment in place.
 Rubber stamps:
IndigoBlu: Grand Tour 1 : air ship. tickets, sentiment and man
Kaiser Craft: Grunge, background
Chocolate Baroque: Antiquities: map. background
 Paper Artsy: Cogs, background

Distress Inks:    Walnut stain, frayed burlap and tea dye
Archival Ink:     jet black

Bits and pieces from Joe's oddments workshop box. thank you Joe... I'm  going to have another root in that box, it's huge! there 's bound to be more metal bits and pieces I can use :).

 Pop across to the Make My Monday challenge blog 
and see what the rest of the talented DT have come up with to inspire you.

 I'm also entering this into Simon says Stamp and show... some Steampunk!

Edited 10.55

Hello Suzi B. Love your monochrome steampunk piece. It's very well done. It looks like you used jump rings for binoculars...very cool idea. Also love the shower ring hooks application. Thanks so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy

That is an amazing photo of the dandelion clock at the top of your blog - I just love looking out to see what you come up with next. I also love your monochrome steampunk offering this week and I'm glad you said where those hooks came from as that was puzzling me. Absolutely brilliant - must get stamping myself after my busy weekend.
