The Inventor

Hello Everyone
Today I am doubling up DT artwork as this project is for Fashionable Stamping Challenge and also DT work for That’s Crafty.
At FCS, for the next fortnight Anything Goes.  There is always a wonderful prize at FSC so well worthwhile entering and there and there are so few rules, although we do ask that your artwork must include stamping and please, no digi’s.  Visit the FSC site where you can also view the inspirational creations by my wonderful DT sisters.
Now I turn my attention to That’s Crafty. For the Steampunk inspired wall hanging I used some wonderful Oxford Impressions’  Steampunk stamps, two sets:- Steampunk Elements and Steampunk Works.
If you visit the That’s Crafty Blog you will be able to view the full supply list, including paints and also instructions, including how I achieved texture on the background.  Also over there you should be able to view some extra photographs.DIGITAL CAMERAHave a lovely Sunday.
