This is the last week on Make My Monday challenge for the steampunk theme and I'm way outside my comfort zone with this one which was 'anything but a card' because I rarely venture into this sort of work much as admire what other people achieve.. I've been mulling this over since I read the post and eventually decided on altering a picture frame. I called into our local shop where everything is one economical price and fortunately they had this square frame with a wide area to decorate. I sanded the surface slightly and applied some gesso and then a coat of acrylic paint, finally sponging with Distress ink. The image of the penny farthing was a free digital download from BTFC, distressed with dusty concorde ink. Various stamps from Kanban, 7 Gypsies, Paper Artsy and Chocolate Baroque were used (the flower is from CB Steampunk Christmas set). I also cut out some cogs using a Sizzix die and embossed them with more cogs using a Cuttlebug folder, again using Distress ink. I can see that I could have made this much more elaborate, especially if I had a handy supply of watch parts and other bits and pieces which are on my ever growing wish list, but at least I had a go.
