Soar Confidently for JAI 546

Just Add Ink's Steampunk challenge came at just the right time for me having just received, and started playing with, Soar Confidently.


I started with a piece of DSP from World of Good and added in some images from Very Versailles (more script), Beautiful World (compasses) and Soar Confidently (the dirigible) all in Crumb Cake. The edges were sponged in Early Espresso.

The vintage balloon and dirigible were stamped in Early Espresso, then I used a Blender pen to spread the ink and Early Espresso to sponge the edges after fussy cutting them.

The cogs are from the Garage Gears dies, cut in Brass Foil and distressed with both Black and Saddle Brown Stazon.

The sentiment is from Soar Confidently and cut with one of the Tasteful Labels dies, then distressed with Crumb Cake.
