Steampunk Tophat Menagerie!

The challenge; to create fabulosity. The object; Smeared Ink Steampunk Grumpies Tophat Digi Stamp! There was no limit to the possibilities! I printed, I scanned, I Photoshopped, I made rub-ons, and (my unfavorite) I fussy-cutted. 

So let us see my results from Altered Pages November Product Partner:

First up a sweet little card that manages to channel Autumn and the Christmas season all at once.

    2. Thank you Donna. I used a product that can be fed through an ink jet printer. Amazon even has it. It's called a rub-on but seems like a clear sticker when applied. Real easy to use though, just follow their directions. Enjoy!
