Steampunk - I haven't ventured far down this path yet, but would like to have a go. One of the young trainee physicists that works in our department has got a job in a Glasgow hospital. What on earth do you make for someone like that. Luckily I bought a set of Indigo Blu stamps "Grand Tour III" recently. This was a chance to use them.
The background was blended Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy and Vintage Photo distress inks, then splattered with water. I then stamped with a scratch background stamp (Brushed Corduroy). To finish the background I repeatedly stamped the compass with Brushed Corduroy.
After that it was a simple case of stamping the main elements in black.
I love the quote which is on this set of stamps and was apt for the occasion. A little hardware to finish the card.
I even found this Stampers Anonymous skeleton for the envelope. We do a lot of bone scans in Nuclear Medicine so this was perfect.
Alastair seemed to like it!! And I was quite pleased for my first attempt.
Thank goodness it's Friday tomorrow.
