My Steampunk Artist Trading Card

Here is my Steampunk ATC that I made from the June Artist Trading Card Kit of the Month.  I had a lot of paper pieces left, as well as the hot air balloon charm, and the grey waxed linen.  The only additional items I used was scissors, glue, a blue and yellow colored pencil, and Pop Dots.  Everything else was included in the kit.  So enjoy!  Please feel free to leave me a comment!

Free June Steampunk Artist Trading Card Kit

Here is the Free Steampunk ATC kit that will be included with orders for June 2012. 
Not shown in the photo below is the word, "Steampunk", which is made from the coolest Steampunk font.  You can see this in the above posting of my ATC that I made from this kit. 
 Included in the kit:
1 - 3 in. x 4 in. piece of Core'dination paper
1 - 2 in. x 4 in. piece of Core'dination paper
1 - small piece of sandpaper to sand the Core'dinations papers
2 - 2 in. x 3 in. coordinating paper pieces
1 - Blank white ATC
1 - ATC sleeve
5 - different Steampunk collage images
2 - different punched scalloped oval coordinating paper pieces (1 - tan scripted & 1 with gears)
1 - white fluted paper piece
1 - silver hot air balloon charm
1 - 6 in. piece of grey irish waxed linen
1 - micro mini metal brad
1 - original watch hand
1 - small glue dot to use to attach your watch hand and charm

Here is a photo of some of the Steampunk images that I chose to use for this kit.  Each Steampunk ATC kit will receive 5 different Steampunk collage images that can be used to create your ATC or other altered art project.   Use images as is, or color them with colored pencils and cut them out to create your own unique collaged ATC. 

Included in your kit are 2 different Core'dinations Embossed Impression paper pieces, as well as a small piece of sandpaper.  The embossed impression on the papers below have been sanded to show the inner core of the paper which brings out the detail of the embossed image.  Easy Peasy!  Also in the photo below is a closer look at the small embellishments in the kit.
