Who's Your (Steampunk) Daddy?

  Got to play with my "new to me" Tim Holtz stamps! Just love this guy! This is for my 90 years young father-in-law, Rod for Father's Day. Lots of bits and bobs on this one! 

  This dapper guy is paper pieced using TH Kraft Glassine paper. Flesh is coloured with chalks.

  The brown piece with the gear is a bread tie covered in TH Glassine paper that I stamped with a background word stamp, then glued on to bread tie and trimmed.
  Ok. A little story about this foam backed puzzle piece. I get a ride to work, but most of the time I take the bus home. For 5 days straight, when I got of the bus, I would find a foam backed puzzle piece! Since I started mixed media, I look at things with a different eye! Anyway, I thought this piece worked perfectly on this card! 
  Cheese cloth inked with some DI Vintage Photo and attached with the Tiny Attacher.
Small kraft tag stamped with a background word stamp and added a gear. The embossing folder is the Cuttlebug 5x7 Clockworks.
 The inside. Papers used are from the Creative Imaginations Gallivant 12x12 set. Love this paper! I bought it at my local paper craft store, The Cutting Garden.
 Here are the other stamps in the set: Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz - Time Travelers. I bought mine at The Cutting Garden. Fabulous manly set of stamps!

Entering in the following:
1. Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Masculine / Father's Day
2. Crazy 4 Challenges:C4C189 - Father's Day
3. Simon Says Stamp and Show: The Letter "S"

  We are getting a licking from tropical storm Andrea, which means pouring rain all day long! It hasn't stopped! Oh well. Good day for some crafty business!

  Stay dry where ever you are! Happy weekend, and thanks again for stopping by and leaving a word or two! Muchly appreciated!

i made it myself!

Love the layering and textures you've created on this card! I laughed when I read you picked up the puzzle piece-I do the same thing when I see something funky laying on the ground. You never know what you'll nedd it for! LOL

Debbie! This is just fantabulous and so perfect for a 90-something year old FIL!! I absolutely love the stamp set that you used, and it is going on my *must have* list! Each layer you have added just adds more interest, depth and, of course, all that yummy texture! Bravo! Bravo!

Pinned! Love this card Debbie. I really liked the stamped image on Kraft Glassine paper. It gives it such a great grunged effect. Fabulous details -- Mary Elizabeth
