A Decorative Mood

Morning everyone, I won't say it's a good one today as it's dark, miserable and grey - not to mention rather cold! I have something quite bright to show you that might cheer up a dull day though.
It's my turn to do the Mid Week Motivation for the Steampunk with Metal Challenge over at Make My Monday this week and I've done a tutorial on how to get a fabulous metal look on your creations without breaking the bank! So of you pop on over, you'll see how I made the dress form on my tag below:

The details of the dress form are on the tutorial and the rest of the supplies used to make the tag and the wings are as follows:
Wings - The Artistic Stamper Steampunk Butterflies
Background Stamps - Grungy Numbers from Paper Artsy Gentlemen Plate 4
Text from Paper Artsy Wrought Iron 3 USW13
Embossing Folder - Mini Steampunk from Tim Holtz Texture Trades Artful Muse set
Additional Inks - Stormy Sky and Dusty Concord Distress Inks, Black VersaFine Ink
Clear Embossing Powder
Drill Ribbon (altered with the StazOn inks)

I'm entering my tag in the Simon Says Stamp challenge - Dies To Die For (Tim Holtz Sewing Room)

No crafting for me today as when this pops up I shall be in the middle of preparing a VAT return!
I would like to say hello and welcome to Jane before I go - thanks so much for joining my followers.
