Strong

Are you STRONG?  How?  I know that everyone has strength in them.  Your strength may be different than my strength or your best friend's strength, but you DO have it.  Find it.  Use it.  Make it an asset!


This is created using paper from a couple of different packs.  I first stamped the Susana Loves Stamps Steampunk Clock.  I then over stamped and embossed with the Susana Loves Stamps Solid Blank Profile.  I swirled some grey ink around the profile to soften it even more.  "STRONG" is from the Susana Loves Stamps Self Words set.  I stamped it in a dark blue and then cut it out.  The gears are from the Laser Cut Chipboard and painted with Viva Decor Precious Metals paints in silver.  I also distressed the background paper with some of the silver paint as well as roughing up the edge.

While you are looking around at SCACD for all the things you just must have, be certain to check out the new Gorjuss Girls and Crafty Individuals stamps.  Can you guess which ones I love?
