Not sure what qualifies as steampunk to be honest.  I know what steampunk literature is, but not really clear in terms of artwork.
Anyway, this was inspired by l!n's post here (I know, it doesn't look much like it, but then I'm not in her league!) I loved it, but didn't have any of the materials, so I used a large chip shape I had, and the Tim masks I did have and started from there.  The bird and flowers at the bottom are from some napkins I bought at The Craft Barn on Saturday, the colours matched perfectly so I layered up some images from one of those, and I used some tissue tape at the top... first time I've used that and I am in love!!  Because I had used the timeworks masks, the sprocket gears and game spinners fitted perfectly.  A couple of the images from the Steampunk Debutante stack matched with the colour scheme (and the sprocket gear theme), and the image of the strange woman hugging the tree is from a sheet of vintage images I found in my stash (another drunken shopping spree I guess!)
I'm quite pleased with it, whatever it is anyway.
So... who managed to get their Tim tickets then?

I love this. You could enter it for the Compendium challenge at Studio L3 today if you've used masks ----- link on my blog if you're interested (candy!)
Just doing my challenge now. And decided I just can't afford Tim but may save for a Lin/Leandra two dayer later next year (if my job is still paying....!)

Gorgeous, love all the birdy and clockworkedness of it all.

You should also come link it up over at Gauche Alchemy while you're at it :P We've been playing with napkins and they'd love to see this!
