Chunky Steampunk ATC for Unruly Paperarts

For the current challenge on Unruly PaperArts.
What I love about chunky wooden ATC's is the fact that you just just shove loads of stuff on them.
For this one I simply painted it cream and then dragged some brown paint over it to distress it a little bit, I stamped my back gound directly onto the block using black archival ink.

I drilled a hole in the side to insert a key charm and then added various painted die cut chipboard cogs and wooden spools to look like they were interconnecting and would actually turn and wind the chain.

My main image was stamped onto card and coloured in using Inktense pencils and mounted into position with sticky pads.

I was trying to get the feel of my Icarus trying to reach the handle to turn off the crazy machine before it turns night into day and burns his wings

My main image is the the Icarus stamp by Lost Coast (he is one of my favourite stamps)
The background is a Blockheads Stamp.

Thank you for your visit today, Carol x
