Blue Man Group minus 2

This is for the Monochromatic ATC challenge this week over at Fun with ATC's. If you like to make ATC's it's a nice, no pressure group, and I'm having fun there! Stamps are from the Steampunk new release over at Artistic Outpost. I did the Torn Marble tech from the August, 2005 , TJNL, stamped in a dark blue. I edged it in Tim's film strip ribbon. I love that stuff, and find that one of my fav things to do is color it with alcohol ink, cut it with decorative scissors, and glue on. I did have a hard time keeping it flat, so I found out that if you hit it with your heat gun (hint hint), it lays down flat! I glued this one down with Zip Dry, it dries clear. Hope you all had a great weekend, it rained like crazy here today! hugz....
