You are a star!

Cogs and clocks are usually found on steampunk cards. Well, I haven't had a try at steampunk yet and I really admire those of you that can make steampunk cards. But the way I look at it is........don't be put off, just use the stamps the way you want to. So I did. I teamed them up with some stars and a couple of other paper artsy type background stamps of splodges and lines and crackles. I only used one ink pad on this card - faded denim. I was scared of messing things up completely by adding a second colour. I added a different sentiment on the back of the tag; simple but it makes a point

I'm entering the card into the following challenges:
The Stamping Boutique - For Men Only
Bows and berries - Masculine
Crazy Challenge - Father's Day
Lexi's Creations - Father's Day
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Tag
Magical Monday - Masculine
Come and Get It - Masculine
Creative Inspirations - Father's Day

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
