And by the way, I have to credit my friend Michael for that title!
Being as how I really love Steampunk and more specifically...gears, I chose to create an 8 x 10 inch canvas for this project. Here's the stamp sets I used:
Slow and Fast
Tick Tock Flowers
And here we go:
Here's some close ups of the various areas, I used mini canvases on top of the big background canvas.
|Phineas looks pretty grand on top of the rosette, doesn't he? I just happened to have a gear that fit round the clock perfectly, and then I filled it with Glossy Accents.|
|I used the Tick Tock Flowers set to create the flower. I painted some card with Viva Ferro paint, then stamped the flowers and heat embossed with black embossing powder. A vintage button tops off the center!|
The initial canvases were treated with Ver Day paint and solution to give that rusty, old metal look. I used the Gadget Gears die to cut A LOT of gears from chip, and treated them with the metal Crackle paints. When they were dry and cracked, I swiped over them with some black paint.
Thanks for stopping by...I hope I was able to inspire you to....get geared up and make some art with your favorite products from The Artistic Stamper!
