Those who do not travel.... collect stamps


 Those projects were published in SNR May 2012 issue
This is my another  Mixed Media try- I made 4 inches and just made a strip with all of them and added this THOSE WHO NOT TRAVEL.... sentiment.. I mean, they do not travel, so they collect stamps.
I used this Postage stamp set from The Rubber Cafe for this piece.
2 postage stamps were stamped over the Kraft paper, one over clear vellum and the last one over some patterned paper. All were heat embossed with Clear embossing powder.

Then I used 4 chipboard pieces, covered with Kraft paper, stamped a print background from Steampunk stamp set with Clear embossing ink, heat embossed with White embossing powder and inked the edges with the same ink I used for postage stamping.
The black lines are hand drawn with black Zig pen.
Then some twines were tied around and all 4 inchies were glued over the piece of Lily Bee paper.





The sentiment  was made with Authentique stickers and I also inked all paper piece around.
And then, as the Steampunk stamp set was on the table, I made 3 ATC SET too.
This time the same background was covered with different stamps from this set, some stamped over 7 Gypsies tapes, i used staples, recycled twine, some Tim Holtz metal pieces and  old Step and Time felt letters from Prima.
It says Step in Time for the Journey.
