Steampunk Dressform

I thought I would make something  a little different this week for my Creative Expressions DT. We were given a fabulous selection of products this month and one of the stamps I have used this time around is the fabulous Steampunk Dressform designed by Sam Poole.
I have decorated one of Wendy Vecchi's Art Parts (small creative covers), stamping the steampunk dressform onto a piece of Tim's Vintage Shabby paper stash papers and then adhering to the cover. I then added an Art Parts Steampunk Gear, Tim's Idea-ology mini gears and light bulb along with other metal pieces.
Once I had added my metal embellishments I then added embossing paste for texture and painted over the entire piece with Gesso.
The whole piece was then painted with Distress Paints mowed lawn and salty ocean. Once dry I added highlights with Gilding Wax.
To add a little more interest I also added some random stamping around my piece using black Archival Ink.
Creative Expressions DT will be holding a blog hop next week Tuesday, 2nd April and there will be some fabulous prizes on offer, pop by next week for all the details or stop by the Creative Expressions NEWS BLOG.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

This is truly delightful. The colours are gorgeous and I love the texture you have achieved with the embossing paste. It's one of those pieces I wish I could see (and touch) IRL. Great use of metal and other embellies.

So cool... love how the texture paste makes the metal gears look as though they're melting at the edges - fab! And the colours look amazing with all that gilding - a gorgeous make!
