Valentine Canvas

I had completely forgot I had done this for the Tic-Tac-Toe
 challenge over at Flying-Unicorn.
The challenge was to create something using different elements
 that made a tic-tac-toe.
I decided to cover the board with my altered canvas.
Stamps from Oxford Impressions. Bon Bon plate
Collage image from Alpha Stamps Wistful collage sheet.
You still have a few days to get in on the FUN, stop on over at Flying- Unicorn,
 show your stuff and maybe even win some prizes!

I Love Rusty things

Even if I have to make it myself.
Playing more with the New Steampunk Telegraph plate from
I created this rusty book. Stamped all the gears into Sculpty Epox
Then rusted everything up.
Bits and pieces come from an old cash register.
Added a layer of mica over the text.
So much fun to create!

Keeping in Touch

Many years ago, before cell phones, computers and even the telephone.
People could always send a telegram
for all those important matters that just couldn't wait.
Oxford Impressions brand new stamp plate
London Telegraph
Has lots of Fun vintage images of those days gone by.
Gave this a bit of a Steampunk feel.
 With the gears on the sheet. I embedded them into modeling paste
on the center building.

"Can you hear me now?" LOL
