Monday, July 23rd

An now onto my project.  I chose papers from the Steampunk Debutante collection, another favorite of mine and a perfect partner for the  Want2Scrap Sprightly Sprockets Chipboard Album, and for blinging up with Art Glitter.  

The pages were sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer Bronze Blush to give them an industrial look with a hint of glint and then bound together with silk ribbon to give the album a hint of feminine charm :-) .

I've used Inkilicious, Prima Printery, Tim Holtz and Artistic Outpost stamps throughout the album and rafia on the tags was from Pink Tulip Creations Ltd
