TIO #103 - Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium


It is my turn to set the theme over on Dragons Dream tag it on  challenge. This round we are chosing film titles and I have decided upon "Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium" as my film title, with the emphasis on steampunk. Do you remember the film? So full of steampunk and old fashioned toys. I loved it!

Do you ever struggle with something, then suddenly get that "lightbulb" moment? Well, this range4of stamps from Creative Expressions (a wonderful set of 3 plates) has a light bulb then a saying that I thought just fits in with that lightbulb moment, so decided I must use it on my tag this week.

So my stamps are all from Creative Expressions, some stamped straight onto the tag and some stamped onto separate card, cut out and mounted, either flat or 3D. My tag has been embossed with a TH Sizzix folder, and inked with faded jeans distress stain, with a litttle black soot to give the raised design definition.

I have used scattered straw and antique linen as well on some elements. I have glazed the light bulb and clock face.

So that is my tag, short and sweet. Pop on over to the TIO challenge and check out the work of my fabulous design team buddies, then give it a go. Just have fun and remember to use at least one real stamp in your creations.

Bye for now. Love your comments, please keep them coming, and I will try my best to check out all your wonderful entries.
