Steampunk!

Hi,
thanks to all of you that joined with us last week for our "reeling in the ribbon" with
what wonderful cards you made with Nat's recipe!
And the winner of that lovely stash from The Ribbon Reel is...


Many congrats Zuzana, please contact Kathy with your details via the e-mail addy on her blog.

It's Rein here this week and my dare for you is all about
"steampunk"
You can find out all about Steampunk arts and crafts HERE and you will find lots of free downloadable things you might find helpful HERE and HERE (do a search on "steampunk").
But basically you need to look back to the end of the 19th Century and all the steam and clockwork machines that were being developed then. You need to be thinking about using steam machines, cogs, tools, balloons, clocks, metal things... on your card, and maybe making your own crazy machines!

Here's what the DT have come up with this week to help inspire you (we hope!). We hope you'll have as much fun with this challenge as we did. Don't forget to come and let us know where we can see your crazy creations.

Great samples from the DT! My first DCM in ages - not sure that steampunk's my thing but it was fun to give it a go! Here's my bird engine.

Thanks for the challenge!
