Steampunk Tags

Good Morning 

Happy Friday!  Here in the UK today and Monday are holidays, unfortunately the weather looks as if it is going to be rather wet which is pretty much normal for a UK bank holiday!  Still that doesn't mean we can have some fun, we have a trip to the cinema booked for Sunday so at least that's one event that can go ahead rain or shine.  

On to today's share which is two steampunk tags I made for a swap in a Facebook group. 


My first tag base is a piece of corrugated card from packaging. I added text from an old book and painted it with Imagination Crafts Rusty Patina Rustique & Verdigris from Keep on Crafting. The sprockets topper is from Linda Simpson Designs.  I have also used one of the Tim Holtz Paper Dolls.  The key is a greyboard piece also painted with the rusty patina paints.  The pocketwatch is from Snipart and I have cut one of the butterfly pieces from Tim Holtz Botanical collection for the wings.  The half cog is from paper clay.  The 'lightbulb' is a safety pin. 


My second tag is a recycled card envelope painted with rusty patina.  The door hinge and wings are greyboard, the cog is an MDF piece from Craft Buddy (Dawn Bibby Creations), the keyhole is paper clay all painted with rusty patina.  The vellum pieces and image are from Debbi Moore Steampunk CD.  The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Quote Chip. 

Creative Blessings.  x

Love your steampunk vibe on these tags Tracey, they are beautifully timeworn and grungy. Thanks for adding them to our linky party at A Vintage Journey and enjoy the cinema today. Happy Easter hugs Brenda xxx
