Debbie Burns

Hi everyone!  Debbie Burns here today with an over sized steampunk inspired tag.  The Creative Embellishments store has a large assortment of steampunk chipboard.  I love working with gears and watches.

I started off by covering the tag with a paper from the Ciao Bella Collection. Next I added some stamping to the background. I fussy cut several images from various papers in the collection to add in between the chipboard pieces.


I used several pieces of chipboard here.  Grunge Gear CornerCircle Chain Frame and Gear Set 2 Medium.  All pieces were stamped with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I then applied several colors of Finnabair Waxes and some Finnabair Art Alchemy Paints.


I cut a piece off of the Grunge Gear Corner and added it to the bottom of the tag.


On the base of the tag I used a piece from Large Gear Frames.  Placed above the frame is a clock from Steampunk Pocket Watches.


I used another piece from the Steampunk Pocket Watches to the right of the tag.  I added some copper micro beads, copper glass glitter and splattered some paint.


I hope I’ve inspired you!

Happy Holidays!
