Considering Steampunk - a TIO recipe!

Hello, welcome to another challenge for Dragons Dream Tag it On. It's Monique's turn to choose a recipe this time, and hers is "considering steampunk"; your ingredients for your tag are: Fantasy, Inventions and Victoriana.  Don't forget to use at least one real stamp. Thanks for all your scary tags last time!

I had a bit of trouble finding some suitable images but hope these fit.  The paper I used to cover my square tag, is from the G45 Steampunk Debutante collection.
I washed over it with some gesso so it allowed the images on top to show more.  Added some images from a couple of Tim's stamp sets,  and some idea-ology and a watch face (cracked, to show it's age... ahem it got broken in my pile of bits and bobs. )
I have used pan pastels to colour the card I stamped the images/text on, so it's not too stark against the background.
Used a bit of the film strip over a piece of the leftover G45 paper in the bottom corner.

Sorry if this is full of spelling mistakes, I am typing this watching the Wimbledon Men's finals - bit distracted!

Come over to DragonsDream to see what my colleagues and been up to!
