Steampunk

This is my first postcard for another Paper Traders swap - we have to make two 4 x 6 postcards, one Steampunk and the other one Zetti themed, and send them naked (without envelope) to two different partners.
It wasn´t easy for me to avoid all those things I usually use but that aren´t water-resistant - like watercolour pencils, distress inks, and watersoluble wax crayons. I´ve used a lot of Gesso here, only permanent inks, and I hope that the faux-rusted Grungeboard pieces and the metal gear that I´ve glued with Diamond Glaze will arrive together with the card ...
