Steampunk Design Team and Giveaway!

Hello and happy day to you all! my exciting exciting news day is here! I am so very excited and thrilled that I am now on the Design Team for Sandee&Amelie's Steampunk Challenge!

We all know that I really love Steampunk and try to incorporate it into most of my designs so this is the perfect team for me! If you haven't checked out this Steampunk blog head on over HERE or click under my DT badge at the bottom of this post and it will take you to the challenge blog. Never tried Steamounk before? It is okay. We welcome all makes and manners of Steampunk inspired art. Want to win a prize? You have to be in it to win it!

As a way to say hello and thank you, I decided to make something! 

I am going to give this tag to one of my amazing followers (due to shipping costs I can only ship to USA). Just leave a comment and I will announce the winner next week. I purposefully left most of this tag blank so the winner could add to it. 

Hopefully you will check out our challenge and Steampunk it up! Carpe Diem!

February Tag Time!

Oh boy has this month been crazy and it isn't even mid month. Crazy in a good way. New job, looking for a new house and so much more but I can't tell you all yet what the exciting, exciting news is! Tune in on February 20th to find out!

As you all know Tim has the February tag up and running. I am determined to do all the tags and above is my February tag. 

Again I didn't have everything that he used but I did have the ephemera pack! I stuck as close to his as I could to see if I could really do it and reign in my design. I love putting my own spin on things but it was a bigger challenge to stay the course! Check out his version here (Tim Tag). For the ribbon I used Distress Stains in Victorian Velvet and Vintage Photo. I also added stickers that spell LOVE

Art supply items I didn't have and what I used instead:
•Glue and Seal-I used matte Mod Podge
•The metal arrow-I used a SpareParts metal arrow 
•The metal corner pieces-I used some from my stash. 
•Black Distress Marker-I used a Copic
•Picket Fence DP-I used Gesso
•Flash Cards-I used TH fabric
•Mini Movers Heart die-I hand cut the heart
•A sewing machine-I hand stitched the little X's to the felt heart (my fingers are Red!)
•Red Felt-I used orange felt and sprayed it with LSG sprays. 

See! Anyone can join in and use what they have. Lol! Happy crafting!

This piece will be shared with these amazing challenges:

A Vintage Journey: Tic Tac Toe HERE I chose Idea-ology or Any metal embellishments, ephemera, and stains

Mixed Media Monthly Challenge:Think Pink. HERE I used pink roses

That Craft Place: Anything Goes HERE

Fussy and Fancy: It's All About Love HERE Love is in the air and this tag will be attached to my DH gift.
