ATC Steam punk

I unpacked in a hurry just to empty the boxes and put things away..... now I can't find things...duuuuu.
I opened the linen cupboard the other day and everything fell out on top of me........ not funny when you are hit by flying towels, sheets and blankets and pillows... lol
Hubby was going to take a photo but couldn't find the camera.
So this week is all about sorting and having everything neat and tidy again.

I host an ATC swap every second month at AD and last month I set the theme " Steam Punk "
and this is the ATC I did for my partner.
The image is from the net, items from my stash and I have used colourful thoughts jewel enamels, distressed inks and crackle medium.

I was GDT at AD last month and my CC challenge was to do an ATC of a famous man.
This is my example.
