Craft-Room Challenge - Something for a Man

Good Tuesday morning well I hope it is a good one!   Here in the north the hours of daylight are increasing I've been leaving work in daylight and there are green shots spring is just around the corner.   Non of which has anything to do with the latest challenge at Craft Room.

Our vintage loving Julia selected our theme this time, perhaps the sprite of Valentines stayed with her as the theme is Something for a Man just go and see what she has made it's stunning.   As always we have a wonderful sponsor for this fortnight's challenge; Flonz who are based in New Zealand.

Last year I treated myself to an Ipad it has become a treasured possession going everywhere with me!  Of course for something so special you want a good cover, and I have tried several.   Looking at one of the discards the other day it occurred to me that I've never seen a steampunk Ipad so I made one!

The basic cover has been enveloped in hand embossed metal, metal disc punched out and stamped with gauges.   Cogs and gears together with a circuit board out of a computer were added linked with wire.   Tell me what Man would not love this for his Ipad!

We all make cards and gifts for the men in our lives, its not so tough really.   If you have made soemthing or are making something for a man that you have not shared with the world before please share it with us at Craft-Room Challenge.

I'm also sharing this with a couple of challenge's I noticed on this week's Saturday Challenge list at Feline Playful.

A Gem of a Challenge - Dies and Punches (I used a circle punch)
Hiding in my Craft Room - Embossing (hand embossed the metal)
My time to Craft - Men only
Suger Creek Hollow - Metal Mania (Steampunk is the essence of vintage)

Other day challenge's
The Cheerful Stamp Pad - Anything but a Card
Simon says Stamp & Show - Use Metal
Victorine Originals - Stamp, Emboss, Embellish
Hotshot craft - No cards allowed

OK so that is 8 challenges, I apologize if this breaks anyone's rules please feel free to disqualify me if i have, I've only entered for a bit of fun.
