A hearty welcome to SanDee&amelie's challenge blog!

Please, note, that this challenge blog is not related to any business and run without any profit by people, who do this for your and their own leisure time fun! Our only reward are your encouraging comments and your playing along and sharing steampunk fun and mixed media techniques. We appreciate every single entry and comment so much! Thank you for taking the time!

If you are new to this place, please, know that we are so glad that you stopped by our little steampunk corner!
Whether you are a dedicated tag or card maker, art journaler or mixed media lover - this might be the right place for you!
For more information about the rules and the little "steampunk/industrial twist" we ask of you, please check the "about" stuff and then simply jump in and create!

If you are new to steampunk and not sure if this is "your thing", maybe take a look at our winners gallery on pinterest (use the linking button on our side bar). You will find that we're mainly a mixed media challenge blog with a little twist towards steampunk, industrial and/or vintage. So why not give it a try?

We are looking forward to seeing your fab projects entered to one of our challenges soon!

Challenge Dreams, Visions and Goals

A hearty welcome and hello to you, dear crafting friends (and those still to become), who do us the honour of stopping by our new (and very first) Challenge blog!
Thank you all so much who stopped by to join in this thrilling new adventure this is for us! As SanDee and me (die amelie) are quite addicted to Steampunk, we had been looking out for stamping/crafting challenges for quite some time that would fit our personal needs - only to find that we didn't find "the right thing".

So we decided to create a challenge blog on our own, where we could invite others to play along with us and share some splendid Steampunkery from time to time (which means monthly ;).

We hope that this place will soon be crowded with paper crafters, stampers, ATC- and mixed-media artists, taggers,...people who share that special interest and have fun.

We want this mainly to be a Steampunk challenge blog, but we are aware of the fact that Steampunk isn't quite to everyone's taste. Therefore we decided to accept also grunge, timeworn, Victorian or vintage look projects - as long as they were given at least a tiny twist towards Steampunk.

We want our visitors to enjoy themselves with our challenges, maybe even sometimes take a step out of their comfort zones.
Play, experiment, be daring!

Our first challenge goes online on March, 1st! Whoop, whoop!

Each challenge will be open for a month and we will choose our Top3 and announce them a week after the closing of the inlinkz collection (if inlinkz for some reason does not work, send the URL to your project via comment-form). During the month of the actual challenge we intend to spotlight some of the entries that caught our attention. And of course we have some cool surprises in stock that are to come with our first challenge to celebrate the event accordingly ;)

Of course we would love it and be really thankful if you took our badge to show it on your blogs to spread the word. ;)

Well, let's see how this challenge blog turns out (we are shivering with anticipation to be honest)... with your help we can make this a wonderful little corner to meet 'n greet, sometimes pull each other out of one's comfort zone and share our drawn, painted, stamped or hand crafted treasures and artwork.

So we look forward to enjoying some awesome challenge times with you!
