Dream Valley goes Steampunk

Hi Folks
Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday.  It is a glorious day where we are today.  So instead of our traditional Sunday roast we are breaking out the BBQ today.  Nothing better on a hot day then a lovely salad and meat cooked on the BBQ.  Have to make the most of it as we don't get many weekends in the UK to enjoy it lol.

But enough of the weather and my eating habits.  Today sees the start of a new fortnightly challenge over at Dream Valley challenges.
The theme for this fortnight is:


Our fab sponsor for this challenge is My Mums Craft Shop and the winner gets a £10 voucher for the store.

Just make a crafty creation using the Steampunk theme, follow our rules and enter any kind of craft creation you like.  It could be a card, scrapbook layout or maybe an altered item.  Anything goes at Dream Valley.

Now this challenge did cause me a bit of a headache as Steampunk is not a style I have done a lot in the past.  But got there in the end.  Sorry for the poor photo but the camera just would not cooperate with me for this one.

Some of the items used in this creation were a Papermania watch stamp, Tim Holtz embossing folder, dies and peel offs.  I printed the sentiment myself.
For more fab inspiration just pop over to Dream Valley and check out the awesome creations there.  My fellow teamies have come up with some wonderful creations.

Thanks for popping by and look forward to all your comments.  Would really be interested to know if I have captured the Steampunk style.

Take care.

Oo, I like this! I love the monochrome colour scheme and the touches of silver. The flying clocks are such fun, too!

Enjoy your BBQ!
