Gear It Up
I am super excited to have been lucky enough to have been chosen to become
a member of this amazing team so with that in mind I have for you
my first post for SanDee & amelie's Steampunk Challenge.
Why not pop over there and join in with the Challenge,
this month it is Gear it up.
Well as I love cogs this one is easy I had some handmade paper and had
already tried to create a piece that I wasn't that
The picture below is prior to spritzing it lightly with faded jeans, salty ocean
distress inks and water to activate.
I used Fresco Finish paints and a brayer then Tim's flourishes,
grunge paste through crafters workshop stencil. Not to
sure you need to do this bit now as I sprayed it all.
I used La Blanche stamps for the centre panel this was done onto
recycled card board.
Tim's Embossing folder (small bingo card ) was used on black card
and highlighted with treasure gold.
Clocks were from my stash I just collect clocks I am not sure where they are
The cogs are made from a memory box die that has been rusted up with
Deco Arts Multi media Paints.
I added cogs from my stash to enhance the die cut ones.
A close up of the clocks I used crackle accents on the clock faces.
I mounted the entire piece onto foam board to give it more dimension.
I hope you all like my first piece for SanDee & Amelie's Steam punk challenge, &
are now feeling inspired to pop over and play along with us. If you would
like to know more or let me know what you think
just leave me a comment.
Cheers Dee x
