Trying something different

A couple of weeks ago, I bought the latest Creativity magazine, because it had a great stamp set on the cover. And yesterday, I finally got round to using it, yay. Usually, I stick with paper backgrounds, you know, old handwriting, maps, music paper, that sort of thing, but this time I wanted to do something else. I used a couple of spattered distress paints and dabs of gold paint for the background. When that was dry, I used a couple of the gorgeous stamps from that set, and then all that was left to do was find an image which suited the stamps.  As I said, not my usual style, but I like it -

Busy, busy, busy today with house stuff, so off I toddle again.

WOW Liz, that is certainly something else from you, I love it!!! those stamps are wonderful looking ,and your image goes perfectly with them.Also a great choose to add the Tour Eiffel, and let it drift outside of the frame,- a great Steampunk piece.
Wish you a relaxing friday evening dear friend.

Oh I just love this tag - the image is so perfect for that wonderful background. I love the steampunk feel to it and also the fact that it is a fabulous tag for a bloke - I find it very difficult making tags and cards for the males of the family! Just gorgeous!
