Be Still My Beating Steampunk Heart!

Can you believe....Valentines and Steampunk???
 
Perfect!!!
 

Then throw in  Retro Cafe Art Gallery  ingredients, and it's just too much fun!
 
Kristin really out-did herself here with this awesome design. I LOVE it!

 Her brilliance is so popular,  people love to use her ideas.....hmmmm.



This comes in 2 pieces. The bottom piece was painted with London Bus and Blood Orange Fresco Paints from PaperArtsy.
 
The top layer is Bora Bora, South Pacific, Autumn Fire, Cinnamon and London Bus.

I used Little Black Dress to "dull" the faux silver watch piece.

 
Black and Red Archival Ink were used to stamp layers of images.

 
And the last layer has many RCAG pieces and an image of a turn-of-the-century Gentleman.
 
The Ornate Keyhole and 2 Swivel Clasps create the top with 2 vintage brass eyelets.
 
Check out the links and get going. This was really, really, fun!
