Tim Times Ten Grand Give-A-Way Challenge: Day Three

Good Afternoon Ladies,

Today's challenge is a Steampunk Tag. We have to create a steampunk tag that includes sponging and heat embossing techniques somewhere in the tag. The design must include a key, 3 arrows, and a pointing hand. At least one of the elements listed must be a metal embellishment and one stamped image must be hand cut. This is day #3. Visit Stampin' Dymoz challenge site to see all the tags.http://www.stampindymonz.com/2011/04/tim-times-ten-grand-give-way-challenge_30.html
Here is my day 3 challenge tag....

I have never attempted steampunk before and this is what I came up with. I sponged my tag with the tim holtz  distress inks walnut stain and broken china. I then stamped and embossed an planetary stamped with versa-mark and Ranger embossing antiquities powder cobalt blue. I cut the houses die-cut from the tim holtz sizzix die and sponged it with tim holtz distressed ink in pine needles. I stamped the pointing hand in black on tan cardstock and cut it out. This stamp is from a pinkpaislee clear set. The arrows are stamped and cut out. I added a touch of stickles to the arrows.  I stamped and cut out wings from the tim holtz clear stamp set artful things. I stamped and cut out the wierd boy doll from viva las vegas stamps. I attached the boy to the wings with pop dots. My third arrow is copper rhinestone from Kaiser. The key is metal from an unknown source. For the tag tie I took tim holtz nostalgic tissue tape and folded it in half and sponged broken china ink on it. I used my tim holtz tiny tape gun dispenser for the first time. It's not only cute but if functions well.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
