Challenge time over at Creative Embellishments - Steampunk Ornaments

I was so inspired by this month's challenge over at Creative Embellishments, I decided to do a steampunk themed tree. I am participating in a few 12 days of Christmas parties on Facebook so I thought it would be fun to show a different set of ornaments each day using lots of fun Creative Embellishments goodies with showing the completed tree on the last day.

For my first set of ornaments, I made small tussie mussies.  The challenge part of this month was to use a stencil or a mask.  On the brown base of each of the tussie mussies, I sponged watered down copper metallic Viva Décor Inka Gold through the Tim Holtz dot fade stencil.  I layered  with G45 paper.  On the fronts I layered a large gear painted in the copper with gauze and a Petaloo heart shaped resin flower center.  I painted the centers with watered down copper and patina and finished off with 7 Dots Studio word stickers.  On the tops, I fussy cut images, added flowers, bling, trim, ribbon, gauze, mini gears, large gears, and propellers.  I inked all the chipboard pieces in the copper then embossed some of them with the Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Powder. 

Stay tuned tomorrow for my next set.
