Tic Tac Toe - Winner and Top3

Servus, dear crafting friends, Claudia here again to announce the winner and Top3 of the Steampunk Tic Tac Toe challenge.

Maybe Steampunk and the pre-Christmas period don't go together too well as there weren't as many entries as I had hoped (and I blame myself of not having been able to lure more of you into a bit of steampunk fun)... but the projects that were entered were absolutely fabulous and I really had a hard time choosing my winner and Top3. Thank you all so much for creating your awesome steampunk goodness for our challenge! I really enjoyed seeing the fun you had while creating pop out of all of your fabulous makes!

Laura is this month's host of our actual challenge "A very vintage Christmas" (where you are to use neutral colours only) and I hope you will all join in! Remember: the winner gets a Top Talent spot with us and will be featured at Our Creative Corner in an extra post with a long Q&A session alongside a project especially created for this event! So what are you waiting for!

But let's see who will be our Tic Tac Toe Top Talent soon (and of course who are the Top3 I chose):

and my winner iiiis....

Sam with her brilliant "Washi Balloon Card"
(Yay! Congrats, Sam!
I so love your card!)

I love that "busy sky" texture Sam created with the "floating" letters on that lovely blue-ish background! And the idea of using the washi tape for the balloon is absolutely clever and looks just awesome!  I also like that there's a lot of traffic going on in this sky ;)

And my Top 3 are:
(in no particular order)

Look at that awesome texture Sam has created! Wow! And I love how she combined all the elements with such a lot of thought and care for detail! There's something new to discover each time you look at her brilliant card! And the colour combo is simply adorable!

I love Susan's vibrant colour accent against the cool patina house shaped background on this tag! And the wire center piece of the heart is a brilliant addition to make this tag a steampunk make with a yummy rust and metal time worn feel...not to mention the rough stitching (which I am really in love with).

The idea of using that beautiful hinge as a real functional hinge for opening the cage to reveal the beautiful quote for the newly wed is absolutely brilliant and sooo very clever. I love it! And I love the really festive and delicate look of this steampunk make!

Congrats to all of you, ladies! I love what you created for "my" challenge and am so happy and grateful that you all played along! Please, feel free to grab the winner's and Top3 badges from the side bar for display on your blogs! 


In the meantime our December challenge has gone online on December 1st and there will be more inspiration for you from Team B on December 15th - so come back to check it out and/or enter your vintage Christmas projects! Looking forward to seeing a lot of fab entries soon,

Claudia x
