It's time for a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog. This fortnight challenge is hosted by the lovely Laila and the theme that she has chosen is...Steampunk. For more details on the challenge and how to join in the fun, hop over to Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. Have a look at the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you to create a Steampunk card/project and join us.
I'm very much out of my comfort zone with this theme. In fact, I was the one who needed to look at my DT teammates cards first for inspirations...LOL. Not sure if I've captured the essence of Steampunk, but here's what I came up with...
I was going to purchase a digi image for this challenge as I didn't think I have any steampunk image, but on second thought, I decided this one might do the trick.
This image is of Tilda With Little Hat from Magnolia's latest stamp collection Special Moments Collection 2013.
Sorry, she looks like she's wearing boxing gloves...LOL. Should have gone with another colour there...oh well.
This and other Magnolia images are available from Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious. Diana carries a large selection of both the full size and mini stamps. And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you. Check out the selection of cutting dies also.
Prices are discounted. Along with excellent customer service, you get to earn 2% in-store credit of every order, to be applied to future purchases. Sweet!
