Adventure is Worthwhile and a Recipe Share

The images in the new Charles & Amelia combined with the Industrial Backgrounds  from Artistic Outpost make for a wonderful collage!  For the background of my card I used the Gelli Plate along with Jenni Bowlin Acrylic Inks, pressing some punchanella into the paint for some added texture. Once dry, I added some gears from the Industrial Backgrounds plate in Spice Tin and Brown Sugar inks.

To create the collage of images, I stamped the image from the Industrial Background in Spice Tin, sponged the edges and layered on a Blue card stock panel.  The  other images are from the Charles & Amelia plate stamped in Brown Sugar and Spice Tin.  I sponged the edges, cut out the images and adhered them to the background image.
