Prickley Pear Blog Hop

Welcome to Prickley Pear's new release of Valentines and Steampunk themed Red
Rubber Stamps!

To celebrate this new release we are having a three day long Blog Party with
loads of inspirations by the Design Team and a give away! One happy participant
will win a $ 15 gift certificate to the web shop. All you have to do is leave a
comment on each of the participating blogs and tell us what you think about the
new release. Last day to enter is Sunday 15th midnight EST. The winner will be
drawn randomly at one of the particpating blogs, one of the days and will be
presented on the Prickley Pear Blog on Monday.

I made a canvas (although I may turn it into the cover of a mini-book later), using the Steampunk Locomotive stamp. I embossed the image with Wow Earthtone Pepper powder and fussy cut the image. The gears were cut with a Spellbinders die from Grunge paper, and colored using Sakura Crystal Lacquer and the new Terri Sproul Mixer Jewel Effects - Gold Dust, Glitter Red and Bronze Satin. I also stamped parts of the wheel elements, glazed them with the Sakura Crystal Lacquer and used them for the centers of the gears. It's always fun to find new ways to use stamps!

Here's the rest of the list to visit today. Remember, there will be more blogs to visit tomorrow. Have fun!
