Cut pattern paper to fit the base of card (or the scalloped paper used here).  Lay metallic mesh on pattern paper and swipe teal ink pad in several spots to give the background more dimension.  Ink edges with brown ink, adhere to card base.  Stamp Steampunk Man with glasses on sewing pattern tissue paper and spray with fixative (be sure to follow manufacturers instructions when using fixatives).  Set tissue aside to dry, about two minutes. Cut half of hinge from tape and adhere to card.  Carefully tear tissue around stamped image then adhere to card.  Add cigar band and locking washers for embellishment.  Locking washers can be found a most hardware stores.
