Planes and Trains with Gingersnap Creations

The Random Redhead Challenge GC111 this month at Gingersnap Creations is Trains and Planes - perfect for our traditional month of travel!  The DT are continuing along our lines of the Steampunk theme, but you can do anything related to planes or trains - let your imagination, ummm.... soar!  For my piece, I decided to go the railway route and used some fabulous steampunk images from Dezinaworld, along with some retired B&O stamp sets from Cornish Heritage Farms.  The map and ticket are colored with Distress Inks and crumpled and distressed to look old.  The 'gears' are part collage images, part metal embellishment.  The background is also from Dezinaworld (Sew 2 in yellow).

Want a little more incentive? One randomly drawn winner from the qualifying participants for this challenge will become GC's new Home Page Artist for a week AND will win a voucher for use in the Dezinaworld store worth $20.00 US.  Want a little more inspiration?  Check out the fabulous creations by the DT and our visiting artists at Gingersnap Creations.
