DT Project #2 by Minxy : Featuring:

Chocolate Baroque Steampunk Travel Stamps
That Special Touch Penny farthing Stencil
Blossom Bucket Top Hat
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Gears
Morning Snazzy Folks
Sorry i'm a bit late, the technology has been playing up, and a post without pictures would be kinda pointless, but it's all sorted now! And boy do I have alot of photo's

I decided to alter a little wooden box

I started by coating the box with 'waterfall' Eco Green acrylic paint.

I then dry brushed some 'pure gold' Eco Green acrylic paint on top to create an aged affect.

Next I stamped around each edge with the Chocolate Baroque steampunk stamps, using black Archival ink.

For the top I used 'peeled paint' distress ink through the wheel of the penny farthing My Special Touch stencil.

I painted the Tando Creative 'wings and cogs' with more 'pure gold' acrylic and arranged on top with some Tim Holtz gears and the Blossom Bucket top hat.
I also used some metal hands and a mini watch cog from my stash.
I hope you like my project and it inspires you to go decorate a box or 2 of your own.
 There is still plenty more steampunk goodness to come with Astrid on Monday and or course Hels the week after, so...
Till next time
Stay Inky
