Inventor Robert Fulton

Here is my suggestion for the Inventions & inventor challenge. 
I think that Robert Fulton should have his own stamp. 
I've made it as a little shadow box. 

I was surprised when I read that Robert Fulton first had tried to sail his 
steamboat on the river Seine, 
but the new steamboat made ​​its scheduled service on 
the Hudson River

He also designed and invented and made a submarine to Napoleon which was 
called Nautilus, 
 In 1920, his drawings of Nautilus was found in London.

I cut 3 pieces of recycled cardboard and 2 pieces of plain cardboard for my little stamp shadowbox.
I started doing a stamped background with clear embossing powder and used Broken China. I placed the picture and the gears which are cut from a texture fade embossing and distressed with the Black Soot Paint.
On the first clear acetate I placed the compass also with embossing powder and some colors, again a new acetate with the steamboat and a little left over from the frame which looked like a wave, and ending with a last acetate, I made a mask so I got the white edge. On the colored edge I placed text, stamps and remnant rubs.
I hope this is a little inspiration for you.

  1. Thanks for the treat, Susan!

    I love your homemade flowers on the tag from the previous post and I definitely enjoyed your stamp design and learning about Sir Robert Fulton. LOVE your brilliant design for his own stamp (which I hope will make it into a real stamp one day!!)
