MAWTT Challenge 84 - Red

Happy Thursday Everyone.

Today at MAWTT, it is Pami who is hostess and she has chosen the theme red (to fit in with the chinese new year if you want to). My digi image this week is a steampunk watch from our sponsors Stitchy Bears Shop. Now steampunk, digi and red really challenged me again and this is what I came up with.

Once I had collected bits and pieces together I knew that I wanted this piece to give the impression of being inside a watch, so I needed to collage all the elements together, which is what I did. The background paper was a download and I masked and sprayed it with a cosmic shimmer spray, then I cut out or tore my pieces and put them together with chipboard cogs (stamped with the steampunk stamps I won from the Craft Stamper) and also lots of hardware - watch pieces and washers etc. You an just make them out on the second photo.

Well I hope you have been happily crafting this week.

Take care. Luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

WOO HOO - you see I SAID you were great at Steampunk Brenda!!! Looks like I was understating a bit - this is great - well done on your CS win too.

Well, you rose to the challenge, Brenda with great success. It does look exactly like the chaotic world and cramped space inside a watch. Now, I call that clever!!

Thanks for your understanding comment yesterday.

Best wishes for another busy and successful crafting day.

It doesn't looked cramped at all, but just gives that impression.

I think this is fantastic Brenda!
Quite a collection of clocks and watch faces nicely put together. I haven't posted anything lately on my blog because I'm getting things ready for my guest challenges on Stamptacular Sunday; however, today I hope to do some regular stamping.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Brenda, sometimes I am just so much in awe of what you do I don't know what to say!! You have created something fantastic. I was a bit like our fellow DT in that I would not have had a clue what to do with this! You are very inspiring! Pami x
