Steampunk tag


I had a lovely day yesterday at the Perth Farmers Market despite the rainy start. After having a recuperating nap when I got home I stayed up late working on my tag for this week.

The theme over at Kard Krazy is "A few of your favorite things". Well I've never been good at deciding my favorites because they change from day to day or is that moment to moment, so I guess these were my favorite things last night.

Of coarse just playing with a tag is a favorite of mine. I started off with distress inks and glimmer mist as a base and then just as in my daily life I used music for my background. I had some gears already cut from Tim's new gear die so there started my steampunk theme, a new favorite fascination. Another all time favorite is metal embossing so I used some brown Ten Second Studio metal with their new Time kabuka mold. Add a little alcohol ink and it's ready to adhere to the corner. I love old keys, I've been using them in my jewelry lately, so it's seemed a given that my favorites should have one too. Added a few more embellishments here and my favorites was revealed.
