February challenge time over at Creative Embellishments

Check out the February Challenge at  The twist this month is to use the Ombre Effect.

Here is my take on the challenge:

 For the March challenge, I altered a muffin tin from the dollar store and went chippie crazy.  This was so much fun to make.  I rusted then grunged out the tray using crackle paint, spiced marmalade distress stain and using texture stamps including the distress crackle stamp.  At the top of the tray, I used the Steampunk Heart. In the cups in back of most of the images I used pieces of the harlequin and chicken wire panels. For the cups starting at the top left: Love true - I created the ombre effect over the three hearts using alcohol inks on metal charms; the dress form is Prima and the wings and sentiment are Tim Holtz; Let the love flow -  I used the distress crackle stamp to distress the pipework chippies.  To get the metal effect on the chippies I added DecoArt aged patina paint and finished off with some aged embossing powder; Steampunk heart with gears in various sizes; The image on the bottom is from Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante.  I used gears and a heart from Petaloo and I am roses.;  for the last compartment I used a feather and a prima nest and sign, and a TH bird charm.
