Steampunk: many of us are intrigued and fascinated by it so I was thinking of making a series of swaps around this theme.
I'm thinking of ATC, charms, matchboxes and maybe even a bigger swap for an altered item (think watches, bracelets, clock, broken cellphones, self-invented stuff, whatever!)

The first swap will be an ATC in steampunk-modus. Use your fantasy to create a really cool steampunk-themed ATC. Please don't make it completely flat, I'm thinking of a slightly chunkier ATC than a normal one.
You only have to make 1 ATC for 1 partner. I'll give it enough time but as it's completely sender's choice and bounded to be steampunk, you can start on your ATC the moment you sign up.

An ATC is 2.5"x3.5", make something you would like to receive. Remember an ATC is not just an image or a sticker on a piece of card stock. Also, please NO low quality prints, people like to see what is printed rather than to guess between the blurry pixels (but using prints in general is allowed to work with of course ^_^ )

I will be checking every profile before assigning partners to make sure this will be a safe swap, so if you have unfair ratings or other things to comment, please message me. NO FLAKERS allowed!

Any questions or suggestions, feel free to drop me a pm!

Don't be embarrassed if you don't know what steampunk is, most of you will know what it is, but just not knowing the right term.
Look at the wikipedia here for the explanation and history or just google for pictures of steampunk to see some amazing examples.

Steampunk, yes please! Though I must say I don't approve of the rule against flat ones, it rules out hand drawn ones which are my favourites. But I can work with that if I must.

@KatarinaNavane Ofcourse it still can be handdrawn! ^_^
I just wanted to have a teeny tiny bit in "3D", mostly like adding a small gear or spring or such... or a part of the drawing drawn on a separate piece and mounted on the drawing with some "mousse tape" (so that it just adds a little depth of 1-2mm... Or if you would make an ATC of a steampunk outfit, add some "pleather" or brass "studs"... You know, just a tiny bit more ;-)

That could, of course, absolutely cheapen and ruin a good drawing. More isn't always better. However I have a card already made that qualifies so I'll play along with your rule even if I don't like it.
