Steampunk tag

I have been looking at this steampunkstyle for a while now and I love it! 
This is my first attempt.

I printed this wirecorset that I found on the net, and then added wire to it. Heated some acetate and distressed it, all according to Tim Holtz. Printed a couple of tickets and tore up a page from an old dictionary. Then I went through all my embellishments to look for things that can fit the steampunk theme. I really like my sewingmachine charm :) How cool is that!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
