Steampunk Tag and Happy New year

I realise you are all saying "Happy New Year???? it's February!!!" but happy blog followers this is my first post of the year.  I had planned on posting much, much sooner, but I was hit with that evil cold/flu that has been doing the rounds and with other family commitments beyond my control, I have got to February before actually doing anything blog worthy.

For this project I was inspired, and I mean instantly inspired to get off my backside after seeing Hels Sheridan post for Sunday Stampers.  So I "sprinted" (ha ha, yeah right!) to the bat desk! Oops craft desk!!!

I grabbed a Kraft card Tag and attacked it with Brushed Corduroy and antique linen Distress Inks, I then used the Tim Holtz stamps to make the background and the gent is also a Tim Holtz stamp but I stamped him on a separate piece of card and distressed it to match then fussy cut (ooh I don't like that term), I cut him out and glued him on.  I then used some Creative Expression stamps (Steampunk and the quote) and attached some metal embellishments.
