Technique one for compendium of curiosities 2 challenges, we are off!!!

Hey there,
Well here is my entry for the start of the fab compendium of curiosities vol 2,the fab book by Tim Holtz, which is where the fab Linda guides us through the challenges here.
It is the start of this challenge:
Technique 1 - custom foam stamps and all the details from Tim can be found on pg 66 of compendium of curiosities vol 2.
So here is my entry:
I cannot share the techniques for making the custom foam stamp, page 66 gives all the details, I used my custom stamp to create the background using DI,and embossed in pewter for background.

Then I added some fab Tim stamps, some ideaology, some stash washers and some die cuts ...coloured with DI and embossed in patches with pewter embossing powder.
Let me know what you think?!

I am entering this for the following challenges:
