I*m heavy on wire

Welcome friends,

our new theme at SanDees&Amelies Steampunk Challenge is
"Top Hats and Moustaches"

are two of the "ingredients" we all love about Steampunk art! So show us your "moustached" canvasses, cards, tags, objects,....those top hats sitting on...well, whatever you think they can sit on.
Anyway - we hope you are not too busy with crafting away on Halloween projects only and maybe find some time for a little Steampunk piece too this month.  

How I made this


 I started by embossing a piece of craft paper, I used the dry embossing technique.


my wire is a chipboard (also used as stencil),
 painted with Fluid Acrylics Silver Metallic


then I used black Gesso 


added Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Gold as faux rust effect + Metallic lustre Silver

background was made with wire and cargo stencil + Distress ink as spray paint (+ water in mini mister)
up(p)s - I'm heavy on wire
squiggly handwriting :-)

crazy bird stamp from Tim Holtz was painted with distress inks 
and Dazzling Metallics Rich Expresso from DecoArt

Happy crafting!
