Some steam, little punk

... but lots of machinery, numbers, some gleaming copper, and Victorian gentlemen. I had to look up a definition for Steampunk as I have never done such a piece before. (And here's another, shorter.)

James, making money is quite easy, you just turn that knob. The steam
 machine is going to take care if everything.

Right here sir?

I will hold my hand here, soon you'll see how it works.

I used a wild array of found metal thingies and fashioned two wheels out of sandpaper. I am traveling and have almost nothing with me, just some basics like atc blanks, glue, scissors and a few snippets of paper. Basically everything you see has been found on my trip. (The dapper gentlemen are from an illustrated novel from late 1800's.)
In a week I'll be back home again, which will be a relief from collage point of view - but otherwise of course not, I enjoy myself immensely!

Entering this into:
That's Crafty: "Number is Up"
Take a Word: Steampunk
Eclectic Ellapu: Steampunk
Unstampabelles: Hero/ Heroine


  1. How clever to put this together with so few supplies! Love the story - great piece! Thanks for sharing with us at Eclectic Ellapu and if you feel like it, Unstampabelles this month would be good too! The theme is Hero's and mixed media and James seems like a bit of a hero to me!!

    1. Thank you for visiting. I had to go and google your suggestion right a way, thank you! I am glad I found this challenge, as I don't use stamping a lot.

  2. Well done! Thanks for sharing this with us at Unstampabelles too.

    1. I added your challenge into my monthly challenge list in the sidebar. I'll be looking out for your future challenges!

  3. Welcome to unstampabelles. So love your steampunk work!

  4. What a lovely project! Thank you for joining us at UnstampaBelles this month! Best, CG
