I have been asked to be a GuestDesigner on Try It On Tuesday for the challenge this week : Steampunk.

I started with stamping various steampunk items with versamark, letting it dry and then brayered with Big&Juicy ink. Immediatly after brayering I sprayed with water and dabbed kitchenpaper on the card to soften it. That's the background. Then I tore and sponged some old paper, stamped the man, steammachine, lightbulb, lyrics. Aged some small rings and sewed them on a small piece of corrugated cardstock, added some metal parts, put some crackle accents on. Finished putting it on black cardstock.

This is another one I made for the challenge:


This is for the man who brought back some magic into my life 1 year ago......
and for the challenge on Sentimental Sundays.


I just love reading fantasynovels about dragons, so for the challenges on Take A Word - Flight - and  Inspiration Avenue - Wings - I had to use this beautiful stamp.

Flying is the theme on Sunday Stamper. I have been considering making a project including an airplane of HotAir Balloon, but I came up with this.
On Sentimental Sunday the theme is Inky Fingers - This week the team would like to see your creations using unconventional stamping materials or techniques! I tore pieces of  tape (the one painters use to protect your windows before painting the frames) and made sure they cover the whole cardstock. I used purple tape instead of the normal cream one. Then I sponged yellow ink on the torn pieces.
