Steampunk Tag/Bookmark


This is my second DT make today.

Our challenge at Crafty Ribbons this week is anything but a card. I have my next craft fair on 30th October and hope to have a few of these bookmarks/large tags to sell. After making a girly one with my new Prima doll stamp I wanted to make a steampunk one. It's the first time I have tried something like this and nowhere near as clever and complex as some of you clever crafters make but I loved making it and will definitely be giving some more a try.

All the products are Tim Holtz except the rubon pennyfarthing and ribbon which is from Crafty Ribbons of course. Even that has had the DI vintage photo treatment as I didn't want it white. I used various rubons and stamps, then DI Vintage Photo and Aged Mahogany. I then heat embossed the die cut on the edge steampunk cad with copper embossing powder and added a bulldog clip.
