Anything but a card

This is our last week at Make My Monday with the monthly theme of Steampunk, the challenge is to now make 'Anything but a card', come on girls, you have been making some awesome pieces of Steampunk, this may take a few more days but be sure to have fun and imagine your an inventor in Victorian days, trying to imagine the future. Please pop over to our blog for the team members have made some absolutely stunning pieces of  steampunk art. I decided to alter a very cheap notebook, you get 5 or 6 for a £1, in Poundand. I love that shop, but then who doesn't? I covered it in papers, stamped and added a few images. the heart and jewels is a piece I actually found in the gutter, when getting out of the car one day, washed it, and thought I'll use that one day, well the day came. Punched a hole through with my Crop-a-dile, secured it with a brad and tape on the back. Added a few cog wheels in her hair. Stamped and punched out NOTES, which I then added Glossy Accents to. A notebook with a difference. I am so looking forward to visiting you all again to see your creations, have fun ladies.
