Pocket Tag Book for Happy Daze

Hi, Happy Daze theme for this month's challenge is Steampunkery, something Mechanical or Steampunk themed.  Have to tell you this challenge really got me worried as all of you who know me...know I am rubbish at Steampunk and avoid it like the plague..............Mechanical.........avoid this as well.  So  armed with a few steampunk stamps from Artistic Outpost, cardstock from a Tim Holtz collection and my mechanical pencil went about making this Pocket Tag Book.




The Tags
Used the Dabber Resist Technique and over Stamping methods on the Tags.   If you would like the instructions on how to make this no glue tag book, have put them on the Happy Daze Challenge Blog.  To be honest I could use the love over there as everyone else on the team is terrific at Steampunk.

Thank you so much for your brilliant support and if you love Steampunk or Mechanical things then this is the challenge for you.  Take care, hugs Annette x
