Inventor of Dreams

Wow! Two weeks sure go by fast.  It is already time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  For the next two weeks, we are looking for project submissions with a theme of Steampunk.  I sure hope you will stop over at FSC to see all the absolutely fabulous inspiration pieces of the FSC Design Team.  For my piece, I created a card using images from Steampunk Elements by Oxford Impressions.  The various images were stamped with Fired Brick Distress Ink, Black StazOn Ink or London Fog Memento Ink.  Some images were popped up with foam squares to add dimension.  Embellishments include black sewing snaps, and a variety of Idea-ology trinkets such as a light bulb, spinner, ticket and memo pin. The card base and images were distressed heavily with Vintage Photo to provide a vintage feel.  There's a great prize for the top winner, so I sure hope  you will submit a Steampunk project!  Thanks for dropping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne
