Lovely Drycha from 3rdEye store is with us again and providing us with a fab give-away for one lucky winner (whom we will randomly draw from all proper entries with the April challenge)!
She also generously offers a 10% discount code for all of our readers who want to shop with her online store! You just have to fill in the code "STEAMPUNK" in the window for codes during placing an order. This code is valid until the end of April. It is for 3rd Eye goodies only, not for classes.
Rikka from 3rdEye design team created a marvellous project for our challenge to share with you today:
Rikka said: "I thought about the technique a long time. I use many techniques, but what's my favorite one? Then I decided to use my all time "go to" technique - adding some masking tape to the background, spreading a coat of gesso on top and coloring the surface with mists. To add a little steampunk there I went with nostalgic tones, used a light bulb printed washi together with the masking tape and added some alcohol ink to the mix. To get the page more grungier I then added some modelling paste to the corners and stamped to the wet medium using a cogs stamp by 3rd Eye. Black splashes, clocks, mesh tape and a huge wing finish the look."

Thank you, Rikka and Drycha, for being with us this month and helping us make this place so special!
If you haven't already read this month's challenge post you can find it (along with some awesome inspiration from "my" fab DT) over here. If you haven't played with us before I would kindly ask you to read the general rules stuff first - I really hate to exclude and delete improper entries as we know that a lot of love and labour has gone into them. But we have to be fair to all those who take the time and follow the rules.
The whole team is curious to learn about YOUR favourite techniques - and about how you can use them with a Steampunk creation! Hope to see you enter our challenge soon! Oh, and don't forget about that discount code offer! 3rdEye really have a lovely range of rubber stamps and other stuff. ;)
Hugs and happy crafting,
