Steampunk tag : Anything goes week



Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Anything goes weekly post.
This time I am going to share a Mixed Media Steampunk tag made with Tando stencil and some bolts from Industrial set and a lot of DecoArt Media products that you can find in the shop.
I made this tag with new for me SinCity artistic stamps and this is a kind of my Steampunk tribute. Yes, I got Steampunk products and Tando has a lot of them and with those products you can do fun Steampunk creations.
So here are some clos up to that tag- I used my old and beloved Tando stencil with DecoArt Texture paste and I made a full tutorial for you  too:




Product list:
Chipboard tag, Stencil, Bolts and cogs- Tando Creative
 White gesso, Texture paste, Media Acrylic paints - DecoArt

Step by step instruction for this tag: 1. Cover the tall thick Tando  chipboard tag with a thin layer of white gesso.

2. Add a thin layer of texture paste over stencil and let it dry.
3. Stamp  with 1923 stamp randomly using pigmented black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
4. Add some random stamping with Cogs and gear stamp in the same technique as the previous step. Paint with a mix of fluid acrylic paints.
5. Paint the edges with another acrylic paint and move some to the middle of  your tag.
6. Stamp the Hot air Balloon with black pigmented ink. You don't really need a fancy stamping tool  used here, but if you have it it makes your life easier.Heat emboss the stamped image with clear embossing powder.
7. Stamp the title, the vintage clock and the Steampunk definition in the same way and hand cut them both.
8. Hand cut the stamped Hot Air Balloon and color it with pencils. The pencils used here were Inktense, but any markers or pencils will do a job. Glue the colored image over the tag as shown.
9. Add Copper Metallic acrylic paint using baby wipe over the tag.
10. Paint the two other stamped pieces with copper paint and add some Antiquing teal cream. Let it partially dry and then wipe with  baby wipe.
11. Paint the bolt chipboards as shown with a mix of two acrylic paints.Glue the circle on the top of the tag and all 4 bolts over the definition stamped piece.
12.Arrange all stamped pieces over the tag as shown. Add a couple of metal cogs painted in the same way as bolts.Use Glossy Accents to glue all metal pieces. Add the cord on the top of the tag. Add the metal corner.
And now to some close- ups of the finished project:
