I stared with  selecting the chippies…..Steampunk Light Bulb Shapes Set.


Gave them a base coat with Gesso…I used a makeup applicator.

IMG_9011Some of the chippies have been finished with Perfect Pearls Mist in Bronze, Art-C Gold and Silver Metallic Paint, and BoBunny Chocolate Pearlescents.  Allowed to dry and edges inked with Memento Ink in Black. I also used a Pitt Big Brush to add additional detail and a Finnabair stamp.IMG_9012Allow to dry completely and add a layer of heat set gloss embossing.IMG_9014Now for some fun layering of the chippies, flowers, ribbon and trims….Steampunk Artist Tag 2I snuck in a Miniature Book Plate with a section of the Altered Pages Stamp. This chippie was finished simply with gold glittery embossing.Steampunk Artist Tag 3Chippies all layered up over the edge of the Triptych Arch frame with a coat of flat black acrylic.Steampunk Artist Tag 4I’m using Stunning in the Coture Collection from Graphic 45 for the background.

Challenge #14 Button it Up!

 Crafters of every stripe are button hoarders! Buttons are pretty, inexpensive, and extremely versatile. If you are a card maker, quilter, layout artist, or anything in between, you probably have a button hoard! Buttons come in many sizes, styles, shapes, and colors, plus they are easy to store…usually in cute containers! Pull out those bins of buttons and use some of them for your challenge project!

Okay now it’s your turn to get your craft on and create a fabulous project with buttons then link up with us at Craft Hoarders Anonymous to play along in the challenge.
