Hi everyone it's Suzi here with mid week motivation. I used Graphic 45 steampunk papers, Dezinaworld digis (butterflies) and a cupcake holder. I hope you join us with this fun theme. I've given you some Steampunk definitions, there are loads, I tried to find the ones suitable for crafters! but my time was limited :)
To help you understand the world of Steampunk think
all things Victorian, steam power, cogs and wheels, whimsy, romance,
science fiction, lace, leather etc etc. use lots of imagination and have fun!

Steampunk is an aesthic and a subculture based around the idea of
alternative history and fantasy versions of the past. It is
Victorian-inspired and influenced, with a heavy emphasis on clockwork

with a science fiction twist. Steampunk costumes and accessories tend to
include Victorian-style items such as top hats or corsets, along with
lots of straps, goggles, leather and brass -- and the ever-present
Enjoy the rest of your week.
