I thought I would have a little play around with some Steam Punk ideas but I am not sure I have properly got my head round this genre! The wooden frame is from Paper Artsy, and I painted it, then added Crackle Paint and Cosmic Shimmers, and dropped some silver EP into it whilst it was wet and heat gunned it, then added some metallic rub-ons and a little Distress Ink. I recently bought some Tim Holtz Sprockets and Gears and as they are a bit expensive, I thought I would use them as masks first, to create a background paper, before adhering them around the edge of the frame. I dabbed Distress Ink over them, and then sprayed the whole sheet with Cosmic Shimmers to blend the whole thing together and just get a shadow of the sprocket shapes (later in the day I realized Tim does sell these in the form of masks, and the new die, but wise after the event as usual!). I then added some tone on tone stamping to the background with images and words mainly from the Artistic Stamper Clocks and Keys Plate 1, which is such a versatile set. The tiny bits of gold hardware round and about are just the pins pulled out from the dominos, when I made the domino box. I just blobbed some Glossy Accents and then sprinkled them on.
The two Victorian lady images are cameo sheets from Debbi Moore, which I love. I punched circles from them and the larger one has been edged with black lace, which I ruched with a running stitch, and then added a pin with a pearl pushed on the end. The other image has been glued to a gold button, to create a frame, and I then covered both pieces with Glossy Accents.
Sorry for the lengthy explanation.
