Today I would like to share a tag with you
Steampunk challenge block for ages, but every month I seem to run out of steam (no pun intended). This month the theme is rust, and though all I have to offer is a humble tag, it's all about joining in the fun right? I know I never have the time to do big complicated assemblages and such, and my steam punk bits and pieces are also limited, but I love rusty things so I knew I had to play.
So, as you can see there are many layers to this tag, the background was embossed and painted with numerous colours of acrylic paint trying to resemble something rusty, aged and worn. I then added some rusty wire, another bit of embossed paper (the bit at the bottom, with a Sculpey Clay tile on top).
Rita. It was coloured with Distress Inks.
Other layers include a photo from one of the papers from Tim Holtz's French Industrial collection, a rusty heart, some rusted steampunky bits, a couple of chit chat stickers and a sentiment from a Donna Downey set stamped on a Tim Holtz tattered banner. All the raised bits were high lighted with various colours of Treasure Gold.
Finally I added some lace and more curly rusted wire and a flower for just a little bit of a feminine touch and there you have it.
I am adding this to Sandee and Amelie's challenge "It's all about Rust"
Thanks you so much for visiting and have a creative day!
