Anything Goes Artistic Outpost

Hello again,

Do you remember sitting in the back of your dads car coming home from a visit to the rellies place and it was getting dark. All you could see were head lights and tail lights. Then from around the corner would appear a neon lit sign with the Vinegar Girl and her skipping rope or the the butcher sign with the dancing Pig.

Well that's what came to mind when creating  this tag. I could just imagine the light bulb lit up generating power to the cogs which would then spin around making the hand and small bottle go up and down. Just like the old signs on top of buildings I used to see as a child. Anyway that's enough about me. lol.

Today I am sharing a Steam punk Tag I have created for Artistic Outpost's Blog Challenge. They have the most amazing stamp collections, one of my all time favourite brands.  The link is Be sure to pop over and have a browse at some of the wonderful creations.
