Very Merry Steampunk Holiday Blog Hop

I love Steampunk and Leslierahye's blog hops give me the opportunity to get out my STEAMPUNK... join us for one final Steampunk blog hop this year!!! 

Supplies: Sheet Music - Grapic 45, Tacky Glue, Quick hold glue, Glitter Tape, Robin's Nest  Poinsettia Dew Drops, TH Star, Brown Ink, Altered Pages Santa Image and locking washers from the hardware store.

The base of my Steampunk Christmas Tree is a one of the pennants from the AC Pennant Banner (there are 24 in a tablet)!
To make the tree: first place the glitter tape on the pennant. Then test the placement of locking washers, once you have an idea of placement... one section at a time adhere with quick dry glue.  You need to work fast!!!!  Apply the glue to one section at a time and place the locking washers, you have a small window of time to change placement!

Once the locking washers are all in place, add Dew Drops with Tacky Glue.  Fussy cut the Santa image from the Altered Pages Miscellaneous Christmas Collage Sheet.  Finally, assemble to card... place Santa behind the tree and add a bright and shiny star to the top!

I really enjoyed the contrast of the soft sepia background and the bold shiny washers and glitter. The Santa peeking out is priceless. love it!
