I made a steampunk style collage today for the Mix..my smooth elements are the stamp with glossy accents, the brad mustaches and the bg paper. The bg paper is something I made with a collage artist I know..she showed me how to take a glossy magazine sheet (Nat'l Geo) and apply some solvents to get a really unique result. It's super messy and I'm not sure I remember the steps to do it but I have several pages to use for cards. My rough mediums include distressed edges, distress stickles, and some flakes (not sure what they're called). For the F4A I have included 3 mustaches and 3 bridges (you have to look hard to spot all three).

Awesome collage Pol! That background is AMAZING!!! I can see the bridges and I hope your gentleman is not taking a step off of the one! (J/K) LOVE the trio of moustaches right down the seam of the postcard stamp! So many FABULOUS stamps and things to see!!! Love it all, so VERY creative!!!
What a wonderful collage card. Sounds like lots of steps to a marvelous creation. The three mustaches and bridges are a great take on today's F4A challenge.
