Happy Birthday OOTH

Yes it's Out of the Hats birthday and to celebrate they have a game for you and for me it landed on steam punk something I usually shy away from, not because I don't like it I do, but because I don't think I can do it justice but I have tried.
This is the altered note I have made with embossing folders, die cuts, paint, rub-ons  and wire


 
Thanks for popping by and I would also liketoenter this for the Tando challenge of flowers

It's a style I shy away from as well Von, but I would be quite happy to come up with this.

Great altered notebook, Von. Love that twisty wire!

Well Von,hopefully you'll never shy away from it again!! I totally love this. The aged look, the steampunk elements and the wire. What I also really love is that you've used that beautiful floral folder (which I have too) and made it into something completely different. Stunning work my friend!!!
Hugs, Julia xxx

Well we learn from our mistakes at times but today you are learning from your success at creating a fabulous steampunk piece. So much texture and grungy colour here Von. It's perfect.

This steampunk cover is gorgeous! I love the gears and flowers, but the wire is genius! Love the hint of cooper in the cover to compliment the wire as well! Wonderful work!
