New Stamp Art Challenge: Steampunk Queen of Hearts

Hiya stampies!

There's another fun contest running over at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity, this time on the theme of "Steampunk Queen of Hearts"! Just enter your themed art using rubber stamps by midnight on February 24 for your chance to win blog badges and gift certificates for free rubber at the incredible Lost Coast Designs, purveyors of some of the quirkiest and most interesting images around.

Here's my project to get you going. It features Lost Coast Designs' gears background stamp behind the action, with the Queen giving orders to Steampunk Icarus to chase down the Steampunk Balloon Guys who are getting away!

I'll be back in a few days with a step-by-step of how this piece was made, including a tip on how I got the cool 3D effect on the gears in the center of the piece. Check back!

Can't wait to see what you come up with for your own Steampunk Queen of Hearts. Click here for all the contest details and get stampin'!


  1. Wowzer! I love this piece. Really looking forward to your upcoming tutorial. Icarus and the Steampunk Balloon Guys are 2 of my favorite stamps. Now I want that Gears Background stamp to my stash!

    1. Thanks for stopping by and all the kind words, Holly! I will be chuffed to do the tutorial now. :) The gears background stamp is great--big size. I think you will enjoy it!
