Steampunk Time Travellers Book - By Carol Fox

Among the new Artistic Outpost stamps available in the shop are this lovely set, Industrial Backgrounds
I have altered this small hardback notebook using them. I coloured the brown board cover using Inca Gold,  I  stamped on it front and back. I then glued a sheet of copier paper over it, tearing it away where the stamped image was underneath to reveal the cogs and engine on the back.

I inked it using distress inks, stamping the images first in distress ink and then in black archival to build up a background.

Adding the final stamped images of the plane, propeller and certificate. A few bits of Tim Holtz Ideaology and charms finish it off.
