Buy it, Try it: Steampunk Christmas card

I don't do many blog challenges, but the Fantasy Stampers steampunk challenge did catch my eye :-)  Just the thing to use my new steampunk stamp set LOL.

The airship Santa sleigh stamp is from Viva Décor, the sentiment is from Stamping All Day.  I smooshed distress inks to make a background, over-stamped with a crackle background, then stamped the main image.
I had forgotten how much I like doing the smooshy backgrounds .... you may be seeing a few more during Blogtober :-)


  1. This is a fab design, Wendy - I love the inky background, it's perfect for your 'steampunk' stamp. Thanx for playing along with us at Fantasy Stampers.
