DT project for Forever night challenges 'Steam punk, metal'

Here is my project to join in with team B and their 'steampunk & metal' challenge.

I have created a wall canvas, the size is 12" x 9".  I used acrylic brown and tan paints to cover the canvas, then inked around the edge with stazon ink. I used spellbinders cogs dies to cut out the cogs and wrapped cross stitch thread around the bottom.

Here is a picture that will hopefully give you some idea of the size!

I printed out this fab image A4 size and the was no distortion at all so it shows the quality of the images!  I have coloured them in pro markers and used a gold pen for buttons, buckles and cogs! Then cut them out and attached using silicon glue

I have added some gold and sparkly buttons from my stash onto the cogs

This fabulous steampunk charm I found on ebay!!

Metal filigree corner from Wild orchid crafts

I will be entering this project into the following challenges

Very very cool piece of wall art. Wonderful work with enlarging and coloring the images and I love the steampunk theme. So many wonderful bits of metals make for spot on embellishments. Such an amazing creation with lots of yummy texture. So happy you joined in the fun with us this time around at Frilly and Funkie!
