Hi there, Francine again with my Blog post for the month of June!

I decided to make an oversized Tag with a Steampunk theme.   Perfect for Father's Day.

I stamped the tag with the Male Steampunk deeply etched Red Rubber Stamp from AlteredPages.  I used IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko Memento Luxe inkpad in the Pistachio color for the gentleman. Yummy & luscious to work with.

I then  distressed the tag with  Memento Luxe Peanut Brittle ink.  Stamped the Steampunk Top Hat with Memento Luxe Peanut Brittle, fancy cut the hat and placed it on the man's head, adding glitter to it, of course!  He has a gear on one eye for improved technical viewing!   A monocle, timepiece and other embellishments were added with paper from the Glitz paper pack, Laced with Grace, creating a border.  On top of the tag is a round Steampunk embellishment and a chain that hangs over the top of the tag.

This was so much fun to make as I love anything Steampunk.   Watch for more Steamy goodness. 

Supplies used:
IMAGINE Craft/Tsukineko Memento Luxe Pistachio and Luxe Peanut Brittle
IMAGINE Crafts/Ink Blushers
Extra Large Tag
Sticky Dots 
Steampunk Top Hat
Steampunk Male Stamp
Glitz Paper 8x8 Laced with Grace
From my stash: Steampunk embellishments (a timepiece, a monocle and a chain)

Check back during the whole month of June to see what the team is creating with our partner

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
