At our last craft and natter our friend Barry gave each of us three die cut pages to decorate so after a brief panic I decided on steampunk and used printed images,stamps and diecuts to decorate the pages,I thought a dictionary definition of Steampunk was a good centrepiece for the front page. At the moment I'm not doing too much in the craft line as I'm getting ready for my upcoming holiday,and when we get home the first job is to TIDY the craft room!! hopefully.

I'm off to what looks like being the windy and wet north west for a few days and I've packed a few cards for Viv's charity box, she is always short of 'man cards' so I've made a couple using my steampunk stamps and papers, they aren't as dark as they look in the photo's, and yes you can see 'peel offs' they are HOTP steampunk dazzles that came in the paper kit - waste not want not!!

We were given a choice of items to make this months St Lukes charity card challenge, I chose - patterned paper,punches/diecuts, ribbon and gems.My colour scheme of yellow with a touch of grey isn't seen very often but I'd recently bought some backing papers that colour so was 'inspired'.

Well fairly mild steampunk I think, I didn't like it at all when I first saw it but lately, with the more feminine papers and things, I've quite taken to it and enjoy mixing the masculine and feminine.This card is made using the Tim Holtz bodyform die, the wings and crown are also Tim's. The flower was made from regular brown paper stamped with a paper Artsy flower stamp and crumpled to give it the grungey look.
I'm entering the card into cr84fn color challenge - lt blue, turquoise and nuetral.
gettingcricky challenge - winged things.
Craft your days away - make your own flowers.

This is what Jan and I sidetracked onto on our recent holiday, we'd seen the papers, and what had been made with them, when we visited the local craft store and decided to have a go - this is my Journal made with my next holiday in mind. I added pockets using the papers and extra pages using Kraft card.
