Another great Teapot Tuesday, yahoo. This week is all about Dewie Doohurtle and his flying machine. I have drawn inspiration for this card from Dewie's great grandfather, Steampunk Sam. In Steampunk Sams day,flight was a myth and was really done by swaying your hand around in the air shouting "whoooooosh".
Beate's great Side Step card forms the base. I have used Graphic45 Steampunk paper. The paper is heavy enough to support the "hand". All edges have been inked with TH Distress Ink - Black Soot. The paper doesn't lend itself to bling, but my hands tend to shake if I can't use bling or flowers. I solved the problem by using Liquid Pearls - Onyx Pearl, quite manly I think.
The guest of honor this week is Bill from Oregon brought to us by Connie "stamp300". I'm off to the post office. Thanks for looking.
