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!

Top 5 and Prize Winners - Winter Special Challenge Nov/Dec 2017

Hi, servus and welcome to the announcement of our Top 5 and prize winners from the winter special challenge, dear steampunk and industrial style friends!

As the winter special was a two-months long challenge, I decided to add a little surprise prize to the usual two give-aways (being sponsored as always by DecoArt media and boozybear)...it's just a small bundle of stuff I put together, but I wanted to personally share a little love and it is also meant as a huge THANK YOU in return for all the amazing entries you all have been sharing with me and my team during the last year! By doing so you make me a very happy and proud challenge blog owner, you know? XXX

Don't forget to return on the 15th, as Team B will be sharing their makes with you then! And of course the actual January challenge is open and waits for your entries! We are back to normal swing which means: it is open until the end of the month and the usual challenge rules apply.

Please note: I had to do a little update on the rules which means I've added the info that we will not be accepting whole video tutorial entries. But short two-minute long videos only showing the finished project (for example if it has moving parts or something like that that is worth being shown) are welcome! But honestly we prefer still images linked to our collections - be it from your blogs, pinterest, instagram or facebook accounts. As long as we do not necessarily have to have an account there to be able to comment on your entries, everything's fine. Thank you for your understanding!

But now on to our Top 5! As always we've had the most amazing creations being entered to our challenge and I have been - once more - stunned by your imagination and creativity! So much inspiration, so much to admire and explore! Thank you all so much for playing along and sharing your fantastic art! To me ALL entries are winning projects as I love each and every one. But I know that many of you love the contest idea behind challenges as it adds to the fun...so "Top 5" there have to be and pick we must (which is always a hard job. I am glad that at least random.org does the picking for me when it comes to the prizes...phew!...I simply couldn't decide if and which makes would "deserve" a prize more than others...).

....aaand the 
Top 5 
this time are...

with her amazing "dieselpunk" project

fantastic "book of mystery"

who created this amazing notebook

with her stunning mixed media tag


who simply charmed us all with her adorable steampunk christmas tree project


Huge congrats and thank you very much for playing along, ladies! Well done! Please, feel free to grab the Top5 badge for display on your blogs! 


And now on to our prize winners - picked randomly among all proper entries. 
Please, note, that there are four weeks time from the day of the announcement to claim your prizes! Just contact me via the email address given in the side bar. DecoArt prize winners, please, also add a phone number to your shipping info as DecoArt will only ship when they have a number to call in case there's some issues with shipping.

With our Top 5 and winners being announced I am almost done for now. Just a short reminder on our Team B makes, which will be shared on here in two days! Our January challenge  is awaiting your entries....and there's one more boozybear special inspirational project waiting for you, which will go live on the 23rd (yes...those who've followed our boozybear special feature will have noticed that it is my project that is still missing ;) ). So stay tuned! 

I hope to see you play along with us soon!
Hugs and happy crafting!
