Steampunk Tags...Tag # 6

This week's Tag # 6 is now underway over at.....
   Go Tag Thursday....and the theme is Steam Punk
As always your Tags can be any size, you can use any medium..just stay within the theme, easy right?...why not pop over and enter the challenge.

                          Here are my Steampunk Tags...


I love how the cogs turned out after painting them,then covering the with crackle accents.
I created the background with some small mechanical style stamps and distress inks.
The main image is a Tim Holtz stamp.


Again the background was created using distress inks. The main image was actually given to me..in fact I had about 4 that were put in with an Atc swap I did quite a few years ago....I unearthed them in the depths of my craft room recently and coloured one of them....so glad I did as he is just perfect for the theme.

Do pop over and enter the challenge if you like to make Tags..it's a weekly challenge and the Sneaky Peek Tab in the side bar tells you the theme of the next challenge...would love to see you there.

Here's the challenge..........Go Tag Thursday

Brown & Teal Tag

I've always liked the way Brown & Teal go together, so I couldn't resist taking up the challenge over at Indigoblu

                             Here's my Brown & Teal Tag.....


The base of the Tag is dark brown,although the photo hasn't really picked that up,the same card was used to mount the IndigoBlu "Wish You Were Here" stamp.
I added the embellishing from my stash and I managed to find some lovely organza ribbon to match the tones....


I've highlighted a section of the card so you can see the brown card..the main Tag I added stencilling in a few areas.
                     You can find the challenge here at
                    Indigoblu Challenge Blog

( be sure to check their rules before entering as there is a requirement that you use their stamps )

Sunday Postcard Art...Picnic

Oh boy,I was stumped with the theme this week over at Sunday Postcard Art...the theme is Picnic.
I searched for some suitable images and really just couldn't find one I liked enough to print...so this week I decided to create a digital Postcard.


The image I found in the public domain,so was free to use. I also used some images from my digi kits to embellish the postcard....I just love that rabbit,lol.
I also create my own sentiment....

Tag # 5...Flower Power

           Tag # 5 challenge has just launched over at
                                  Go Tag Thursday
There's a great theme too...Flower Power...you need flowers,or at least one on your Tag.
As always, any size Tag,any medium, just stay in theme.....go on,unleash your talent!




This Tag I am entering in to the challenge over at Crafty Individuals....the theme there this month is Mini Masterpieces...
My Tag is small,at 3.25" x 2" and I used the fabulous Crafty Individuals background stamp, but because the tag is so small,I wasn't able to use the whole image.
I actually won a challenge there a month or so ago and I chose this particular stamp as my prize..I love it.


The lace is genuinely vintage..I bought a few yards of it from a lady who took over an old haberdashery shop,so this lace is about 30 years old,maybe more...I love it and use it very sparingly,lol.
