Steampunk Christmas in July

FA-529-M Steam Train
WT-003-M Traveling Tessa
ES-192-L Snowy Pines

It's time to cool off and think about some snow! Third Coast Rubber Stamps just started a new challenge blog! July is "Deck Our Blog With Boughs of Holly!"

So, I've been experimenting with my new stash of stamps from TCRS. Lots of Steampunk coming your way, and I hope this has a holiday or winter feel to it. I'm learning to use "masks" to layer the stamped images to make a scene.

Begin by  stamping an image on scrap copy paper, cut it out, then stamp your image on your regular cardstock. Place your "mask" over the image and then stamp another stamp, make a mask of the new image, and continue to stamp additional images. I started with the girl, added the train, and the last image was the tree. The mask protects the image from the new stamp you add to your.

I layered my double masked girl on to a scrap of Daisy D designer paper, took a photo with the iphone and edited it through Photowizard, Picfx, and Impressions ( which adds the text). I email it to myself and sharpen it a bit more with Photoshop Elements.
