"Girl with Binoculars" -Steampunk OTP

Hi and welcome once again.

Today I am sharing the third of my Design Team creations for Fabscraps using the "Floral Delight" collection. I have run out of these papers......but rest assured if I can get my hands on more I most definitely will. This project for me was a little challenging. I was asked very kindly by the lovely Tish to create a  Off The Page Project with a Steampunk theme!

Um Steampunk?
Have never ever ventured this way before......so I took to using my good friend Google to do some research firstly to get me on track.

From then I got to thinking about a stamp pack I purchased whilst on Easter holidays last year at a fantastic Art shop my husband found in Harvey Bay........! It has worked in perfectly  with this theme.

So I have called this one - "Girl with Binoculars".



You can see here the amount of wonderful Chipboards that I have used. The Fabscraps Filigree Shelves are absolutely delish! I have dressed these randomly in gold embossing powders and then quite heavily used distress inks to colour them up a little more to make them pop off the torn and inked corrugated board. I have cut these clock hands from the Tim Holtz sizzix die and covered them with the "Floral Delight" pattern papers.


You can see here that I have used a lot of chipboard and some most Fabulous Fabscraps Charms....!


I have layered the cogs, stamped clocks and the chipboard Fabscraps Frames with the charms


And from another angle.


Have I mentioned how much I love these charms. Here I have attached this beautiful piece as the body to the Filigree butterfly and wrapped some twine through the top and then around the project.


Well that is all from me today. I do hope you have enjoyed this OTP project.
As always, I have included a full materials list with step by step instructions....just keep scrolling.

I wish you a wonderful day and until next time....happy scrapping!
