Anything goes with Dee

As promised sorry its late my 3D project as you can see I got carried away 
and am getting even busier at work at the moment
 so it took a few days to complete.
For those of you that attended the Ministry of Mixology I used Andy's techniques 
from his workshop  & a few of my own, to decorate this amazingly 
useful storage unit.
I used Deco Arts crackle paste through Tando Mask - Long Flourish.
The key, cogs, & compass were created by covering them with Texture sand paste
this was then painted with raw umber then paynes grey
next I used Quinacridone Gold.
The clock face was stamped onto white card then painted with water colour pencils 
and then blended out and sealed with Soft touch varnish.
The flourishes were sprinkles with Lindy's stamp gang magical powders then
spritzed with water.
A close up of all the lovely crackle.
Another close up of the keys these also were treated to the 
Lindy's stamp gang powders also.
I made a feature of the joins as I thought they would make a lovely 
aged feature to it.
A close up of the clock. 
I also touched the flourishes with treasure gold.
I left the sides of the compartments red to give contrast also I lined the 
base with Tim Holtz resist papers.
I sealed the entire project with Soft touch varnish. If you have any questions feel free to ask and I will try to answer them as best I can. I hope you think it was worth the wait.
Please feel free to let me know what you think.
Cheers Dee x
