Dabbling in Steampunk

Hello friends, and happy weekend!  I've been dabbling in steampunk, trying to think outside my little box, so to speak.
The bases for these creations are Papertrey Ink's 4x4 chipboard coasters, which I could easily become addicted to.  The backgrounds for the two coasters above are free steampunk sheets from Squidoo.
Inspired by Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante collection tag.  I couldn't resist altering a little birdie and her nest.  Have a beautiful weekend.

P.S. A zillion different sources for things here... if you have a specific question, please do email me. :)

Fabulous! Your step out into
Steampunk is very courageous (at least to me)! And I love the sort of feminine touch you've added to it.

Very clever, love how you used the chains and the clock hand on the bird is brilliant.

These are great--the imagery keeps you looking and thinking, and your color combos are lovely!

So interesting:an elegant lady tied up to some roses, a man who looks like he has a pocket watch- but not, and a bird who has decided which way to go. Fabulous.
