I am also entering in at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge with it, where they ask for selfmade backgrounds.
This background, made out of one of my glossy cardstock party plates, which I love to use as small palettes for acrylic colour painting or glueing, actually was an "accident" that happened while I was playing around with stencils and gold acrylic colour, which I afterwards treated with AAI.
The rather suspicious person on the right (SHE did it!!!) is a picture from my fabulous beloved "Steampunk Sourcebook", stamped images (Tim Holtz stamps) were embossed with aged copper embossing enamel and black "Sternenstaub", paper scrap (inked on the torn edges with Distress ink "pumice stone") comes from BoBunny's et cetera Collection.
Some close-ups as usual:
