This fortnight's challenge over at http://carteajouer.blogspot.com/
PRINCIPLE OF THE CHALLENGE:
Thème : Steampunk Theme: Steampunk
Technique : Récupération brique (de lait ou jus) Technique: Recycle a Carton(milk or juice)
The inside of a milk carton has a very waxy feel to it so when making the background I first swiped a perfect medium pad across it before running through the cuttlebug embossing folder. Then I brushed the surface of the embossed carton with two colours of perfect pearls. I then die cut a bird cage out of milk carton and cut it to resemble a hot air balloon and ran a small oblong piece for the basket and two birds wings through the embossing folder too. These pieces I coloured with alcohol inks. The basket I embellished with gear cog washers and clock hands. So as you see I have focused on the aspect of steampunk that incorporates the technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them.
