Good Afternoon
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are we today, bet your glad its Friday?

Well did you manage to view the Eclipse - only thing I saw was the
sky went overcast as though it was going to pour down and saw the
sun go behind cloud ,Ah well maybe next time it might be a bit more

Today's make is something I have never done before Steampunk and
I must say I did enjoy doing it.


1. Card base is 8 x 8 and I matted it with paper from the Tim Holt
paper collection idea-ology. Before I adhered it to the card I
went around the edges and distressed them.

2. Next using Robert Adams dies Clock, Cogs and pocket watch
I used gold card to create them and adhered them to the card.

3. Next layer from my stash was also distressed and inked around
the edges and I adhered this at an angle.

4. The image is from Nikki Burnett and was one of three that
I won (I will show the others next week) I think she is a
stunner and really had fun colouring her with my Copic's.
She was then die cut using a SB die and I again inked
around the edges with Tim Holts distressed ink Vintage Photo.

To add more effect I took a piece of old chain and glued it to
look as though it was wound around the cogs and then added
a key to the bottom.

Well that is it from me today but I will be back tomorrow
with my DT head on for a new challenge over at
Creative Craft Cottage and it starts at 8.00am GMT time

I hope you have enjoyed todays blog and that you will leave me
