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!

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!

At the end of each challenge, two winners are randomly selected from all proper entries (be sure to check out our posted rules) and will either get an awesome DecoArt Media prize package, or an amazing chipboard package.

 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. 

Now, on to the wonderful makes from our team...
