Fashionable Steampunk Stamping Challenge #22 and the Candy Winner!

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my napkin {heart} art tutorial - if you do give it a try, please let me know what you created!

Time for the new Fashionable Stamping Challenge and this fortnight we are playing with Steampunk theme :). As always we are sponsored by Marina from Cottage Crafts :).

Unfortunately I run out of time and didn't manage to make a project so make sure to check my DT Sisters' fabulous creations to get inspiration for this challenge ;). I will try however to get your 'Steampunk' mojo activated with these few beauties below.

According to Wikipedia Steampunk is a genre which originated during the 1980s and early 1990s and incorporates elements of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, horror, and speculative fiction. It involves a setting where steam power is widely used and often features futuristic innovations as Victorians might have envisioned them, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style and art ;).

I've collected some gorgeous Steampunk themed images in one of my Pinterest boards and here's a selection of my favourite ones:

You've got two weeks to complete your project and please remember that we are passionate about rubber stamping - so your project must visibly feature some traditional stamping (no digis allowed!).

Now, something you have all been anxiously waiting for! ;).

First of all I would like to thank you all for joining my 2nd Blogaversary celebrations. Not in a million years did I expect so many of you to join ;)). 

I'm sending a big 'thank you' to all my 'old' followers and the warmest welcome to all my new followers - I hope you will continue supporting my creative journey :))).

So without further ado, the lucky winner of my 2nd Blogaversary candy picked by my Glamorous Assistant (my DH that is!) is....drum roll please!....

Congratulations Caz!!! I hope you will create lots of beautiful art with it :). Please contact me with your address details and I will send the postie your way shortly!

Well, my candy is now officially closed but for all those crafters with a really sweet tooth I've got something special lined up! Check out my new Blog Candy Cauldron with an ongoing linky of fabulous crafty stash giveaways!

Have a fabulous crafty week!

Big hugs

Oh how intriguing Brenda! I can't wait to see it! xx

Thanks Wendy! These beautiful items are not actually mine (although I truly wish they were!). I found them on the internet and pinned to one of my Pinterest boards :)

If you click on the pictures, this will take you to each individual pin, where you can see where the images were sourced from :)

Erita said...

Congratulations to Caz! Thank you for the fun! Those Steampunk images are really fantastic!

Sue said...

congratulations to Caz. The steampunk pieces are glorious as is the shabby chic heart. It looks stunning. I think decorated paper napkins are a much under-used resource.

Lisa S. said...

Great pic's Joanna and TFS! Congrats to the candy winner!!

Nigel Roberts said...

Those steampunk pieces are superb - love the butterfly :)

Alexandra said...

Gratuluję i pozdrawiam :)

Just popping to let you know that you were drawn for my giveaway book. Please contact me with your address and I will post it out to you.

Love steampunk images - my favourite definition of steampunk is that it is what we would be enjoying if someone hadn't invented the microchip :)
