Flying Machines

This card was actually influenced by several challenges. It was a lot of fun to create. I'm kind of in a Steampunk mood ever since Gingersnap gave July the theme of Steampunk. So this card is for the Gingersnap Spicy Supply Challenge 110 -- Gears, Cogs, and Watchbits. The layout is based on Mojo   Monday's Challenge 199 sketch. The Ink on my Fingers Sunday challenge 162 is Flying. and finally, the July challenge at Inspiration Emporium is texture. My flying machines are images from a Mailbox Muse collage sheet. The background panel is embossed using a Tim Holtz texture fade on Core'dinations paper and then sanded. The sentiment is from Oxford Impressions.
