All of these supplies will be linked at the bottom of this post.  Here you can see a stamp, stencil, birch wood gears and chipboard keys.  I know, I know this collection rock’s-it… and there is even more choices in the store.

Here in this photo you can see the texture and design from the gear stencil by applying a layer of modelling paste through the stencil.

After all the pieces of chipboard have been primed with DecoArt Gesso, dried; I painted my textured tag, and key chipboard with DecoArt Paint.  I applied ink to the key stamp and stamped onto the wings of the chipboard key.  The stamp really add’s to the overall steampunk look.

Added a little paint splatter to give the tag the rustic look and tied a ribbon at the top of the tag. How do you like a the soft pastel version of the traditional grunge dark steampunk projects.  I found it a challenge to not go dark.  So, how about you the reader and scraper can you give it a Pastel try?
