Steampunk Tag

The whole Steampunk thing intrigues me but I am not very good at producing work in this style.

The theme this week at Dragons Dream Tag It On is inspired by the movie Mr Magorium’s Wonder Emporium. I had not seen the movie so I hired it from the local library – still have not seen it and it is almost due to go back, lol.

I based my tag on those created by the fantastic design team. Firstly, I masked the tag and sprayed various ink sprays to produce the background then I embossed the tag using a gear & cogs folder. The dress form was cut on my Silhouette and I added metal elements and charms from my stash. The wings are stamped onto acetate using a Tim Holtz stamp from the Regal Flourish set.

I am reasonably pleased with how it turned out.

Thanks for popping in to take a look.
