Today's work is being entered in the That's crafty steampunk surprise challenge. I started with a pair of black dominoes, painted the sides of them with silver distress paint, then used black UTEE on the top of them, doing the first layer with versamark ink, then layering the UTEE three times. When the third layer was done I pressed a rubber stamp onto it, leaving it to cool, then using mica powder to colour it. Once that was done and the overflow edges snipped off I glued a bail onto one side. For the other side I added some watch parts, and used black soot distress embossing powder on a pair of silver wings to grunge them up.
Once that was done I cut and scored some black card to make an accordian book, which I decorated with Graphic 45 Steampunk spells paper, plus an L and a bat made from grungeboard, which I painted with black gesso, used the black soot distress embossing powder, some distress glitter, and my green lustre spray.
Before glueing the accordian book onto the dominoes, I grabbed some red lace which I painted with metallic distress paint, and glued it onto the back of the dominoes. Once the accordian book was attached, I folded it up (takes some doing as the grungeboard is thick!) and tied the ribbons together. Here is the closed book.
Hope you liked it!
