Hi guys :)
well here i am with my final piece for Simply steampunk challenges, i have loved my time as a guest dt member and i tell you peeps if you love steampunk run over and check them out .

OK so here it is, Halloweenie 5


Isn't he a lovely sad little fella!
not sure my colours show very well in this one again, they are fine in real life but a bit subtle for the camera, oh well you can get the general feel of it lol
the image is as always done with pro markers then fussy cut, i went around the edge with glossy accents, and once dry i went over with Cast Bronze Gilding Wax, which i got from the lovely Lisa at That Craft Place, oh boy does she have an Aladdin's cave of goodies.
i took a plain brown card, and some vintage brown paper, which i tore into 4 and then distressed the edges with of all things, a foot file LOL , (don't have a fancy paper distresser) .
then i cut loads of cogs on my craft robo from silver mirri, but of course silver isn't the right colour so our come the pro markers and a dab of gilding wax to look like rust..


next they are layered up all around the image, quite a simple make but effective i think, 

so i would like to say a great big thank you to the girls at Simply Steampunk, and of course 
Simply Betty Stamps, for her fab fab images.
THANKS GIRLS

  11. I love how you've "rusted" your cogs, and how you've used them to frame the image.
