THE TIM HOLTZ 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - DAY 8

Welcome to Day 8!  Today Tim did a Steampunk theme.  Although I think the look is very interesting it is not really my style.  Ironically, the card I did today turned out to be one of my favorites.  I had a clock die cut and some gear diecuts that I colored with the Metallic Paint Daubers and then used Walnut Distress stain on top.  I had the Graphic 45 Steampunk pad which I have had forever and hadn't used so I was happy for an opportunity to use something from there.  I chose the Steampunk Debutante.  With the wings and the Christmas theme I figured she would be a good punky angel.  I didn't have the picket fence paint dauber so I used the silver instead and stamped a background image on my card.  Then I took the 3 shades of Holiday Distress ink and my blending tool and colored my background.  I took a music stamp and ghosted in a few places.  I got all these items adhered to my card and finished off with a snowflake, shiny black chipboard 'JOY' and 2 antique metal buttons.  Here's today's card:
