Steampunk OctoGrump Garden!

Today I am playing with another of the Smeared Ink Steampunk Grumpies with Altered Pages products!  When I showed this card to my husband he said I needed a yellow submarine... at first I didn't get it then I realized this little Octogrump has his own little garden of gears!!! 
 
 
 
 
 
Color the Smeared Ink digi Octogrump with Chameleon Pens, fussy cut, add rhinestone eyes with Tacky Glue.

Attach the mat and background paper to the card base, lay the white netting from Mermaid Fantasy Muse  Kit and add embellishments.  Ink the white Bazzill Edges Mini with blue before attaching with Tacky Glue.
 
 
 
 
Ink the upper left corner of the card lightly with white ink.  Attach dew drops, Anchor and seahorse with Tacky Glue.   Ink the Chipboard Gears with Delicata Gold and Black inks.
 
 
Adhere the Smeared Ink digi Octogrump with Dimensional Adhesive and Tacky Glue, add the German Scrap Crown and locking washer.
 
  Finish the card with twine.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
