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!

 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.
