Stampunkery



Morning Peeps, today I am posting again over at the Chocolate Baroque blog sharing a few more of my makes from the recent Steampunk Hochanda shows. I won't go into all the detail here as I have explained all on the CB blog should you want to check out what I used. Lots of snippets of card in the one above so off to the Snippets Playground, hopefully Parsnip is getting into seasonal mode and has some mulled wine on the go.


As I intimated when I did my last Steampunk post, it's a theme I had never ventured into previously, beetles and clocks with wings and hats just doesn't gel with me and I approached this show with trepidation. But I have to confess that I did enjoy the inky grungy side of it and after all, the challenge is about doing something new and stepping outside your comfort zone.


As always my thanks for your visit today.

Wow Brenda you've done a brilliant job. It's good for us to step out of our comfort zone now and again or so I've heard. I love what you've done. I'm the same as you and find it a tough one. Glad you enjoyed the inky side. I think they look amazing. Hope you're keeping okay honey. Sorry it's been a while. Hugs hugs. Take care xx
