Day 4 at the Unruly PaperArts Christmas Link Up Party

Hello friends.  Hope all is well today.  I have day 4 of my steampunk tree ornament reveal.  I love the grunge side of steampunk and made some angel wings.  I used the Tim Holtz angel wing die and made three sets of the two style wings

. The wings are made from cardboard and coverstock and the gears are CreativeEmbellishments chipboard.  The rivets are just half-back pearls. I sealed the wings with multi-medium matte before adding the Artist's Loft Course Texture Gel from Michael's to get the texture.  Lots of layers of acrylic paints although the camera doesn't pick it all up.   I am the third picture is what the backs of all the wings look like.
