Historic Tredegar

Continuing work on our 2013 photobook. This was part of our trip to Richmond, VA seeing the Iron Works 'Tredegar', who provided ammunition to the Confederate soldiers of the Civil War. Such rich history in Richmond.....as I said before, we definitely need to take another trip there.... there is so much to see.

I did not have a 'bomb' stamp, so I created one using a circle punch, a square punch and the 'July Fourth' stamp (cropping just the fuse). In creating the reflection on the bomb (the crescent shape), I custom-made it starting with a circle punch in the My Digital Studio program. FUN!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Supplies Used:
Background - Basic Black with 'Well Worn DSP' #11 overlaying it at 60% opacity
Stamp Brush Set - July Fourth (stars - Basic Black and fuses - Basic Black)
Punch - Square (Basic Black and Textured Cardstock - Basic Gray); Circle (Basic Black); Crescent (Basic Gray)
Font - Wide Latin (Basic Black and Basic Gray); Cooper Black (Basic Black)


  1. Beautiful! I LOVE those homemade BOMBS, too; so awesome! TFS!
