I really like steampunk with all its quirkiness so thought I would have a go at decorating a ready to go box that I got here. I have used some Ferro paste to hold all the embellishments (old Spanish coins, bottletops, ring pulls, electrical bits, rusty washers, an old bracelet, broken toy chain and a rusty nail). The main image is a of a bird cage lady from Scrollswork and I have used their stamps for the saying to the left "I create, therefore I am". Behind the acetate window I have stuck some cuttlebug diecuts arranged in an arch. The inside of the box is painted black then sprayed with cosmic shimmer inks to give it an aged effect. I am going to use this box to keep all my odds and ends that I find ..it has a magnetic closure to keep all the contents safe!!
The challenge over at Fiber Arts Mixed Media is to use unusual embellishments and this weeks Sunday Stamper is bits & pieces..so think this box suits both
its midnight here so...just checked out scrollswork blog and am very pleased as have won some more of their stamps for winning the sketch no 3 challenge with my rabbit card..so expect some more wacky creations coming here soon..goodnight everyone!
