I took an mdf cog (approx 12 cm) applied grunge paste through a stencil, dried it and added scrunched tissue for more texture.
I coloured it with various colours of distress paints but forgot to take a photo. Then I swiped it over with little black dress fresco, I prefer to use this instead of the black soot as it isn't as runny. Then I applied quite a bit of pewter treasure gold.
I really rubbed it in to all the nooks and crannies to show up the textures on the cog.
Then I took some wooden and chipboard pieces and using the same foam pad as used for the cog, I coloured them. I also added the 3 colours of metallics. Outlined the edges and stamped in little black dress.
And then once I started adding embellishments, I couldn't stop - lol. It seemed such a pity to cover up all that gorgeous texture, but I love how it's turned out.
I added cogs, gears, spinners, brads, mini wired coat hanger, prestuds, handle
Metal zip, screw top, more prestuds, Roman numerals, metal wire 's'
Over at Our Creative Corner, they have a steam punk tic tac toe challenge. Although I've used about half of the ingredients on the grid, my actual line is wings, gears and wire.
