Good morning everyone - I honestly didn't think I was going to make it this morning as my son decided to re-organise his room last night and that included moving his computer. We lost our internet connection all last night and only managed to get it back at 9am this morning. That mean't I was late getting the challenge up on the Make My Monday blog - but it's there now and you can hop over and take a look at our brand new theme and challenge. This month my lovely dt colleague Cath has chosen STEAMPUNK for our theme and she kicks off by challenging us to make a Steampunk inspired ATC. Here's mine
I have used a 2.5" x 3.5" piece of card stock and stamped it with a Tim Holtz  Components stamp from his Stampers Anonymous range - this one being Time. I then inked it with Brushed Corduroy DI. I then added some pieces of Tim Holtz Idea-Ology  - a metal pointer and some ball chain. The pocket watch is a past free stamp from the cover of Craft Stamper mag and it has been embossed with gold. The face has had some crystal effects added and then when dry bent to give a cracked look. It has been attached with 3D foam pads.
I really hope that you can spare the time to pop over and take a look - there are some fine dt samples and also we have a guest designer this week - Hilda - she was our July monthly winner and she has produced some stunning ATCs.
Thanks for looking today, bye for now - Jacqueline xx


  1. An absolutely gorgeous creation Jacqueline. Love the background and the stunning watch.
    Glad to see this as I was wondering what had happened - don't offspring pick their moments!
    Have a great week.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  2. My goodness Jacqueline - this is extraordinary! The watch looks real and it looks fantastic against your beautiful stamped background. Off now to have a look at MMM! Vx

  3. Looking Good - I've not made any ATCs for absolutely ages but will have a go later. Just love steampunk!!

  4. Jaqueline, your ATC is gorgeous! So well done! Thanks for your encouraging words concerning my first attempt at steampunk! Yvonne
