SanDee&amelie's March 2020 Steampunk Challenge

Hi, servus and thanks so much for stopping by and being part of our monthly challenges once again!
Claudia here this month to present to you our March challenge, which is once again an

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial 

themed one.

Just before we dive into steampunk crafting fun I would like to once more address the fact that we ask all our players who enter our challenges via Instagram to upload their pictures directly to our InLinkz collection instead of giving the Instagram link. They have made some changes to their platform at the start of the year - one of which doesn't allow fetching images from their platform anymore. But as this is a challenge blog that is mainly about sharing inspiration and getting inspired by the others' projects (and only secondly about making Top5 or win two of our sponsors' generous prize bundles), being able to see these in a picture is crucial (at least from my point of view).

For all those not familiar with uploading images to Inlinkz directly from their devices and how to add a link and email address I have put up a short how-to that you can find in our tabs right below our challenge blog header.

This way we will be able to show ALL your Top 5 projects again instead of just having links and names in our  Top 5 listings! Thanks for your understanding!

Bespoken "prize bundles" are - as always - being donated by our two generous and true sponsors DecoArt and boozybear to whom the team and I would once more like to shout out a huge "THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR GENEROSITY AND FOR BEING WITH US!"
As usual two prize winners will be selected at the end of the month via random.org among all proper entries - so make sure you've checked our few rules (which you can find with the "Da Rules" tab below our blog header). The challenge is open until the end of the month and prize winners are announced on the 15th of the following month.

My wonderful design team have once more come up with awesomely inspiring projects and I always love the variety in their approaches to the steampunk or industrial theme! But let's stop talking - take a look for yourselves:

has created another stunning art journal page
filled with beautiful texture
that she calls "Moments in Time"

She has used some chipboards, stencils and paper cut outs as well as some self made casts she has done using a newly bought soft mold and an "extraordinary filling" - so check out her blog to find out more! 

has used her "favourite colours and die cut hearts alongside some moons" on a beautiful base that has an extraordinary shape - so eye-catching, isn't it? 

has come up with a journal page as well. Look at all those layers and collaged elements! I love those pops of vibrant colours here and there and that loosely done background! 

"Steampunk Illuminati"

project had her (and me) come up with many intriguing questions...
"What would Paris look like in the steampunk universe? Was the Eiffel Tower a device to collect the aether? A portal to another dimension? Could it be, the answers are all hidden in the symbols of this piece?"

Here's a close up of her project 
showing beautiful texture, patina and crackle

and I

went once more for some of my favourite craft parts, vintage portraits and background techniques (using DecoArt media products)
to create this plaque with three handsome "moustache gentlemen"


For more information and images, please, visit the team's blogs by clicking on their names and if you can spare a second or two, please, leave them a little love so they know their hard work is appreciated! Thank you so much!

This bundle of steampunk inspiration should get you going I guess ;)
We hope to see you play along with us this month and cannot wait what it is that you will come up with this time!

Hugs and happy steampunk crafting!
