Hello all you Crafter's, i hope all is good in your Crafty World!
Today is the start of a New Challenge at That Craft Place
Theme is one of my Favourites - Steampunk
There's a few photo's to show you how i made my project.
Hopefully i won't bore you but thought some may find it helpful with a few step by steps on how i made it.
The picture shows Grey Board Laser Cut but i had mine cut in MDF which is such good quality from That Craft Place Ltd
First prime the MDF with All Round Medium, once dry i applied Texture Paste through some Stencils.
Then paint over it all with Gesso so that the paints etc will not come off.
Next i painted it with Acrylic Paints in Turquoise and Cerise and then with White Acrylic Paint i dry brushed all the edges to tone it down. The back piece of the Frame i painted black and again dry brushed with white paint.
Now to start adding the papers which i roughed the edges up.
I added several Die Cuts around the edges before i glued the frame to the Backing MDF piece.
All die cuts were sanded all over and aged with Distress Inks (Full List of colours at the end of the post)
Here's the image i used from That Craft Place Etsy Store called The Pilot.
Coloured with Copics on the Super Smooth Card from That Craft Place.
Skin- E50, E51, E21, E11, E13 & cheeks E93
Lips - RV30, RV32, RV34
Turquoise- BG10, BG32, BG53, BG57, BG75, BG09
Gold - Y23, Y26, Y28, E87

And here it is all finished!
Here's a few close ups so you can see more of the details.
The Metal Aeroplane & the tiny fob watch started of as brass coloured but it was gessoed and then i applied Inka Golds.
Stampendous Frantage in Aged Teal was sprinkled and heated in various places
I also added Inka Gold to the raised bits i had done with Texture Paste to add a bit of shimmer.
Final photo to show the dimension
