Sandee & Amelie's May Steampunk Challenge

Welcome back friends! We hope this finds you and your loved ones in good health. We are so happy to be back together for our steampunk/industrial challenge with you, and are thrilled with the phenomenal participation over the last two months with our COVID-19 extended challenge.

Perhaps you found more time to create while safely at home, or maybe it was your way to destress after a day of working...whatever the reason, we love seeing the amazing makes you created and shared here with us. It is an honor to share our little steampunk corner of the universe with you! 

As always, our challenge this month is

Anything Goes.

We welcome all types of projects that fit our steampunk/industrial mixed media theme. Please check the rules for the details. Maybe this is your first steampunk project, we would love to see it! Maybe you have entered before, welcome back! This challenge is open to all levels, and we love the inspiration you share here.

Many, many thanks to our awesome sponsors who keep the cogs and gears turning here!

 In these continuing uncertain times due to the global pandemic, our awesome sponsors have been impacted with closings. We are trying to get the prizes out in our usual time frame, but please understand there may be a delay in processing and getting the prizes out to the winners.
