ATC theme... Steampunk!

Last Sunday was not only my lovely mother's birthday, it was also ATC swap day.  The theme this month was steampunk and the group came up with some AWESOME cards!!  I wish I could show them all to you, but at least I can share mine:

The title of the card is Tempus Fugit (time flies).  The paper I used has pocket watches.  I stamped a butterfly in the upper left corner, cut some gears on my Silhouette, and printed a butterfly with gears in the wings digi I got from a French blog I don't remember (sorry!). The digi was antiqued using Tea Dye Distress ink, I added a stamp of a clock in the lower right wing, then added gold and copper Stickles and silver with my Stardust pen.  The gears were cut from siver metallic paper and kraft paper.  The kraft paper gears were colored by gold metallic Ranger paint daubers and Smooch in Molasses color.  I edged the card with Chestnut Roan Cat's Eye Chalk.  The butterfly is pop dotted over the gears.

Whew!
