Dirty spring steampunk

 today I have something Dirty to share with you....now get your mind out of the gutter its not that kind of dirty...its dirty vintage, but thats a good idea I'll have to create something dirty next :)

Today is the April Member Blog hop for Smeared n Smudged and the theme is Dirty Vintage so I created this!

he is one of the steampunk images from Simply Betty, I colored him with pencils then I stamped the gears and watches on the green paper and distressed the background made it look really dirty and added some lace but it was to girly so I burned one side of it and now I really like it!

now off you go hopping along here's the blog roll...leave lots of love :)

Awesome Kapree...love your Simply Betty stamp and how you colored it. I used one of her stamps for my blog hop creation also. Love how you made it a mixed media piece with the metal. Always great work...Wendy
