November challenge EE - D

Hello everyone - am hoping all is well with you all. It is time for a new challenge over at Altered Eclectics and I have chosen to alter a canvas using a steampunk theme.  Alot of different elements in this project so I think I should just list as much as I can rather than ramble on and on and on!

I have used the following:

narrow rope and odd pieces of chain
wooden cogs, wings and smaller clock face - wings were sprinkled with frantage just after its dipping
diecuts of iron fence wrapped in wire, clockface and hands, key and keyhole - all dunked into my melting pot
brass keys, twisted and scewed up wire
printed steampunk lady - decoupaged and dunked in melt pot
duct tape stuck to card, run through embossing with clock folder and black card using cog embossing folder then embossed using gold powder
book rings and chain holding the metal keys
pieces of card covbered in masking tape scrunched up and dipped in melt pot
everything was painted blue, black and gold and red rub over when dry

Sorry for the overload of pics but I could not make up my mind on which ones to use so you got the lot - SORRY

I do hope you like it and I would like you all to hop on over and join in the challenge this month.  It is always ANYTHING GOES as long as it is altered art.

Hugz to you all
