Steampunk workshop

I was looking at an e mail from You Make Me Ink, and I found a link to Top Tip Tuesday, and they have a challenge on at the moment "Metal or Faux Metal, and as I received a new die yesterday which is a Memory Box "Handy man tools"  I thought I might like to enter a card in this, so I made a card with black cardstock for the background card, and I used a piece of designer paper from the new Graphic 45 "Good ol' Sports"  I have an 8" x 8" pad and I really like these papers, I stamped out a clock from one of the early Tim Holtz stamps, I cannot remember which set this came from because I have lost the packaging, I also die cut a steampunk owl, the small one, from Cheery Lynn "Owls with Gears" set, the shelf was cut from a cereal box and stained with Tim Holtz distress ink "Vintage Photo"  the clock was also stamped with this ink, I put a couple of little googly eyes on the owl which I bought from Spotlight in Newcastle, they have several sizes, and the tools were cut from some silver card stock that has been lying in  my scrap basket for some time, the black gears are also cut from a Cheery Lynn die, I don't know the name of this as these were a gift from a scrapping friend, I quite like doing these steampunk style cards.
