Her Imagination is Boundless

I love it when a fuzzy idea just metamorphoses into exactly what you want it to be.  The Stampotique Designers Challenge this week is Steampunk and the the CC3C #2 challenge was the Distress Glitter technique on page 54.

I embossed the background with a gears die, rubbed over it with gold ink and then heat embossed it with clear powder.  The bottom tag is embossed and distressed with Distress ink and the Create tag was silver so I put some gold Distress paint over that.  (Hey!  I just realized that this works for SDC 147 too - tags!).

This is my first time playing with Distress Glitter.  I never really saw the big deal about it, but have to admit I like it.  It's more subtle than regular ol' glitter.

My thought as this ATC came into being:
"Once the gears started turning her imagination was boundless."

Thank you for stopping by today!
