This weeks challenge over at Just For Fun (link on the sidebar) is Steampunk. Neet has chosen this weeks theme. (Edit: sorry Marie) This week is a special week as my blogging buddy Marie from Dolly Daydreams (link on the sidebar) is a guest designer for JFF. If you have not visited Maries blog before then click on to the link. You are in for a real treat.
After a lot of head scratching and puffing and blowing I decided to go with steampunk vehicles. I hope they class as steampunk anyway! LOL! Or maybe they are just plain daft!
I really enjoyed messing about with various stamps and got a little carried away. In the end I made a load of card toppers and put them in a small folder.
This is the one I am entering in to the challenge
These are the rest
The last photo is the folder I put the topper into.
The cogs (well that is what they are supposed to be! LOL!) are made from paper punches and fancy scissors.
I am quite pleased with how they turned out. Maybe the earth moving, rock boring contraption was stretching it a little! It’s the one that looks like a cup cake!
All in all it was a great challenge and really good fun.
That’s it from me. I’m off to catch the tennis.
Best Wishes Florence.
