Steampunk Hares

I could not resist but to give the fabulous Handsome Hares from 100 Proof Press a sprinkle of Steampunk decoration. Well they are one of my favourite stamps and Steampunk is one of my favourite themes, so why not!
The background of my card has been decorated with Tim's Tissue Tape and I have stamped Gears on to the tape and embossed with clear embossing powder, adding vintage photo to give a little colour.
Mini gears have been added, coloured with aged mahogany to give a little more interest with a Game Spinner added for dimension to one of my gears. The handsome hares have been coloured with pencils and have jump rings added, metal always works for me with the steampunk theme so these seemed the perfect little touch.
I stamped the Ruler onto white card, coloured with vintage photo Distress Ink and crumpled a little to add to the ageing and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  Steampunk Hares is computer generated. A little more metal in the form of brass charms add the finishing touches.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
