Dragons Dream Tag it on Challenge # 120

This fortnight it's my turn to dream up a recipe for Dragons Dream TIO. First I want to thank you all for the fabulous entries, we had a great time looking at your tags. My recipe is: “Considering Steampunk” - the ingredients are fantasy, inventions and Victoriana. The only other rules are that it has to be a tag and you have to use at least one real stamp. Hope you will have a great time

For this tags I used stamps from:

De Stempelwinkel: the walking couple and the stone floor
Kicostamps: the car, cogs, the senti and the baloon
Stampinback: the face

The images were coloured with pencils and the background is distress ink, the cogs are embossed with copper embossing powder

I will enter the following challenges:


  1. Wow, wow, wow... I'm missing words, this tag rocks. Such a fantastic background and the stamping - so wonderful.

  2. Fantastic tag - absolutely love it. The stamps you've used are really amazing (off to check out the sites next!), and the colouring of them and the background is fabulous. Great challenge, great tag. Dank u wel.
