Timing sometimes appears like a gift. I have to admit, I haven't been thinking much about steampunk lately. But with photos from the World Steam Expo online, including the Black Ibis Tarot from the creative people at Insects & Angels, and the upcoming meet up this Saturday at The Velo Fellow, a steampunk pub if I've ever seen one, I'm getting back in the mood. I have some vintage photos I want to copy and use in collage, but had little inspiration lately. Not until just this morning when I saw the coloration of the tarot and here I was wondering how on earth I could get that same incredibly saturated sepia effect. And then today Tim Holtz posts new instructions and wow - it's just the right material especially since you can inkjet print on it. I can't wait to get some and try this out. Amazing stuff especially when it comes to Steampunk items.
