Faded layers for Compendium of curiosities vol 2 challenge , technique 4..

Hi there,
Well it is that time where I am yet again nearly, too late!! for the compendium of curiosities challenge..hosted by the lovely Linda!!So the challenge this week is faded layers and can be found on page 43, so here is mine:
I started by choosing some distress colours, and my favourite stamps, well today they are anyway..It is so hard to choose just one favourite..but I love these steampunk guys!!!!

Anyway I cannot tell you how I made this other than to say read what  the master himself has said,Tim Holtz,on page 43 of compendium of curiosities vol 2 and get inky!!
So another photo..just because!

This was a new technique for me and i love it, will definitely be playing again, soon!!!!!
I am entering this for the following competitions:
