Steampunk Trio

Hi Crafters,

I have been having a sort out in my craft room (a bigger job than I first thought, lol) and came across these fabulous Steampunk toppers from Kanban Crafts that I had forgotten about so I made a few cards with them.




Together with some cog papers, X-Cut and MB cog dies and sentiment stamps I created these cards. I'm really pleased with how they turned out but then again I'm a little biased towards the subject :)

Challenges I'd like to enter:
That Craft Place - Steampunk
NBUS Challenge - #5 ATG (NBUS - Kanban Toppers)
Creative Inspirations - #326 Vintage
Crafty Friends - #14 'B' is for...'BRIDE'

Hope you are having a lovely Sunday - we have enjoyed the sunny weather this morning as it is meant to be wet this afternoon.

See you soon,

Lorraine

Lorraine, what a beautiful bunch of cards you've crafted from these great finds in your 'very own shop'. Love these vintage images, and the different ways you've embellished each card - pretty papers, great designs, and wonderful steam punk look with the neutral & green tones. How fun it fit into NBUS as well! Clever you! Good for you on the cleanup too. TFS & Happy Sunday. Hugs

Hi Lorraine,
oh these are fab.
Wonderful designs, and great toppers used.
Isn't it amazing what you find when you tidy your craft room.
I did mine earlier this week, and oh did my back ache so afterwards, but I didn't find anything so nice as them. LOL.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
