Steampunk Theme for February at Scrap FX

Hi All,
I wanted to share all my steampunk creations for the Scrap FX Design Team
for the month of February in this post.
More fabulous inspiration can be found on the Scrap FX blog.

This canvas panel features a treasured photo of my Dad on service leave
from the Army in the early 1950's.
Love how the Steampunk & Vintage styles go so well together.

More pictures & information about my creative process can be found here.

Even cards can be made using this theme.

For something a little different I decorated this wire dress form.

You can check out all the Steampunk goodness over at the Scrap FX blog.
Thanks for taking the time to read.

You Are Beautiful Tag for Paper Rose

Today I am sharing a special tag I created using fabulous stencils & die cuts from Paper Rose.

The base is a scalloped edged chipboard tag from my stash
which I firstly coated with white gesso & let dry.
Crackle paste was then swiped through the geometric stencil & also left to dry 
so perfect cracks developed.  
Blue Mica Spray in areas then highlighted the cracks & texture of the background.

I had been playing with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals on watercolour paper
making beautiful dreamy papers.
So I die cut one of these papers with the Lots of Circles die  with interesting stitched feature as a focal point on the tag. Elevated this with foam tape.
I die cut the Layered beautiful die from a pink section of the same papers with a shadow of vellum.
Extra stamping for the sentiment comes from the Beautiful words stamp set.

Prima Leaves & Flowers were coloured with Magicals & white gesso.
Pink & Purple Ribbon & pale pink jewels complete this lovely tag.
Hope this inspires you to make something pretty too.
Cheers Deb
