The Ravages of Time

Hi everyone I have a wall plaque for you today that I made out of foam board.
It is mid month reminder time over at SASPC this
months challenge is Ravages of Time.

If you have never tried to do steam punk why not give it a go. I started by using 
some grunge board that I had tried to die cut with a cog die but was it was 
to thick so it left a lovely imprint of the cogs.

I then used a Tim Holtz die to cut out the houses. I used Deco Art media line 
paints, textures & varnishes, to colour them. The above house was scraped with
texture sand paste once dry it was coloured with 
media fluid acrylic in cobalt turquoise and two coats of 
Andy's dirty wash.

unfortunately I can't tell you how i made the base of the house above 
but if you would like to learn Andy Skinner Timeworn
on line coarse shows you how.

This is done using the same process. paints used were Quinacridone Gold
covered with burnt umber, & slight touches of cobalt turquoise.

Americana burnt orange was painted onto white card that had been screwed up 
& the time stencil was added with media modelling paste. 
Three coats of Andy's dirty wash was used over the 
top to age it. Andy's industrial stamps were
stamped in black stazon to age it further.

Close up of the cog impressed grunge board.

Another close up.

Deco art media crackle paste was used to frame the houses.

 Once dry it was painted with Phthalo turquoise &
treasure gold was used to highlight the uneven area's.

Home made clock embellishments and cogs were used to decorate 
and enhance the plaque.

That's all folks please let me know what you think as I really 
enjoy hearing what you have to say and it inspires 
me to keep trying.

Don't forget why not join in don't let the words steam punk put you off our very 
talented team offer a real variety of steam punk.  Lot's of the teams work  is very elegant &

June Challenge over at The Artistic Stamper

 Hi everyone its time to play over at The Artistic Stamper 
This months challenge is Summer is coming.

I have used Neil Walkers Fantasy background and border stamp,
The new dragonfly stamp & the new petal masks. 

I used Fresco finish paint in Beach Hut, Pea Coat, Inky Pool,
Limelight & snowflake for the base. I had stamped 
The fantasy plate onto distress mop up card 
with chipped sapphire DI.

I tore strips of the mop up card then stuck to the base and then
Grunge paste was put through the petal mask and
crackle paste was put round the edges &
painted when dry with fresco paint.

The fantasy border stamp was stamped onto the base board in chipped
Sapphire DI and gold embossed. 

gold gilding wax was used to highlight the petals and
crackle paste.

The dragonfly was stamped in Bora Bora & Limelight fresco paint
and clear embossed while still wet.
This then got a coat of Smoked Paprika and London Bus.
cog die cut's and sequins completed the look.

I layered it all onto blue then black embossed card that was highlighted
with gold gilding wax.
I hope you all enjoyed my post be sure to join in with us over at the Artistic Stamper 
where you have a brilliant chance to win Artistic Stamper stamps.
Let me know what you think.
