Grungy Monday #4 Texture Fades

Check out Grungy Monday #4 at Linda's Studio L3. This week I have a beloved Steampunk themed tag. I used the numbers texture fade, and I inked the plate with Walnut DI before running it through the Vagabond, so the ink ends up only on the low points. Then I stamped on the high points of the impression with Tim's Steampunk 'Plan AA' stamp and of course the top hat trio. I added some beads that I thought looked like gears along with the other couple of geegaws.

  1. It is very interesting how you worked this tag. I love the idea- and never thought about stamping on the high points of an embossed surface. I also like your steampunk theme a lot!
