Remember When

When I read the challenge this week at Studio L3 was Rusted Grunge. I knew I wanted to play along. I created my Steampunk card using stamps from Artistic Outpost Steampunk and Playtime plates. My key was created using the Rusted Grunge technique You'll find the how to in Compendium Of Curiosities book.
I also added a few of Tim's embellishments.

Linda Ledbetter said...

Lynn! Honey, I've been WAY remiss in visiting your wonderful blog, and I hope you're having a great 2011 so far.

Your steampunk card is RAD, girlfriend! I love how you incorporated the rusted grunge into this amazing combo of images. The colors are soft and nostalgic (I think colors can be nostalgic!), and the ghost-like train looks amazing! The gentleman looks so noble there, bold and eye-catching and perfectly vintage.

This is awesome!
