The Wacky Professor Father's Day Card

Hello All! Sorry it's been so long...the Summer months keep me lazy...sort of anyway. I will try to visit everyone soon. Today, I have the first of two Father's Day cards...this one a wacky Steampunk type card made for my FIL, full of stamps from Tim Holtz and Stamper's Anonymous...namely The Professor, and lots of new Tim Archival Ink from Ranger...oh and his great new Voltage Sizzix Die too. Phew...a lot went into this card!!!  I love The Professor stamp set, and there are so many images to keep you creating. The vintage style makes me happy I had to add many more images from other vintage looking sets. Hope you like, but more importantly I hope the FIL likes it. 
I'm on the road so time and products are light, so I only have three step out photos. I started by stamping images from The Professor and Noble Gent sets, using Archival Ink onto Distress Heavystock. I stamped over the images many times using different colors of ink for a layered effect. I messed up on the second briefcase, so I stamped another...thank goodness for the Stamping Platform. I fussy cut all the images out...ugh...and stacked them up. I made the Professor into a bust, as I ran out of room on my card...typical...and stamped his face again, cutting out the goggles, nose, and mustache, for a 3D layer.
I put together the Voltage meter, but I added stamping to it from The Professor, and then added sides and a top to it, so it would become a that collects data and spits out an informational ticket! could happen!!! I made the ticket from a Label Sticker and added stamping to it with Pegz Stamps.
Then came lots more stamping using four more sets. The background was extra busy, but I like it. The important thing is, I stamped the zig zag thing...a cranking lift jack thingy now...hopefully to give the illusion that the wacky Professor rises from his hat and into the sky. seriously could happen!!! Then I added the rest of my pieces on.
