SanDee&amelie's May/June2021 Steampunk Challenge

 Hi, servus and welcome back to another two-months long steampunk and industrial style challenge, dear creative friends! Claudia here again and I hope you have been making it through the pandemic well so far and are all safe and sound. I am slowly coming back after a long creative break - definitely not my old self again yet, but maybe that isn't what I want to return to anyway - crises is a chance for change they say and I plan to take on that one. ;)

Are you ready for another challenge? I do hope so! The theme is our usual

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

one and the rules still apply as usual as well - with one slight change though: you can enter up to five makes during the next two months instead of just three. We will draw a prize winner on the 15th of the following month after the challenge has closed  and then also announce our Top5 of course. 

Sadly I was informed that DecoArt are still under production and shipping restrictions due to Cov19 pandemic production guidelines and will not be able to send out prizes outside the U.S. until at least Fall - so I'm very sorry to have to tell you that there will be no more DecoArt prizes this year. The team and I would like to take this opportunity though to say a huge THANK YOU for the generosity and for having DecoArt with us on our challenge blog journey for so long! 

We still have lovely Glenda from


by our side though! So at least one fabulous bundle of surprise steampunk chippies will go out to one lucky winner! And each project you enter is a chance to win these, so: don't hesitate - create!And maybe your entry will make it to our Top5!!! So there's fame and honour to be gained too. ;) 

The team has once more come up with some fabulously inspirational projects and I hope these will lure you into playing along in the final run! Some of the projects also feature mentioned boozybear chipboard pieces - so look out for these! And of course you can also visit the teamies' blogs by clicking on their names to find out more. If you can spare a sec or two to leave them a little love, that would be so lovely! Thank you! 


came up with a giant sea horse - as always done in her beautifully unique monochromatic layering style. 

Another picture - this time featuring the artist herself - to demonstrate the size of the sea horse:

What a wonderful and impressive decorative piece!

used one of the beautiful boozybear umbrella guys on her fabulously creative "snail mail" project. 

is sharing a project she made in a class with finnabair. She says:
"It's Mime...don't you wonder if the characters in the stories live inside the book?"

The back: 

and I 
- Claudia

decided to indulge in some delicious crusty rustiness and create a travel themed tag duo
using mainly boozybear chipboard pieces and some of my favourite embossing

I hope the projects have inspired you to play along! 

 The challenge is open until the end of June and the team and I cannot wait to see your fabulous entries!

And don't forget to visit us here on the 15th to find out about our March-April Top5 and the boozybear prize winner!  

Hugs and happy steampunk crafting!
