Steampunk Mix & Match

It’s finally time to release the big Mix n’ Match collection from Tiddly Inks and Make it Crafty!

Together they have been craftily plotting behind the scenes for months (making us drool in anticipation) to bring you a fabulous collection of Steampunk creations with a Victorian theme! You’ll find little steampunk houses, bits and bobs background scenes, flying contraptions, gorgeous characters and the finest selection of digital papers!

We could send you on a little hop, but they are getting a bit boring... so we knocked our heads together and thought up a game to play instead!

‘I SPY’ with my little eye...

I found it extremely difficult to choose which images to use, they are all so phenomenal. But a girl must choose, so I used Tiddly Inks - Precious, Make It Crafty's - Oliver, Rusty Can House, and the Metallic Flowers.

First off, my clothing is not at all Steampunk or traditional Victorian colours, but I wanted the images to pop out from the background.

Precious Close Up
Oliver Close Up
I used a Flower Frame by SVGcuts.com, but removed the flowers then cut out the two layers of the frame 3 times on cereal box. I did the same with the gears and Sprockets from the Steampunk Gears set by FreeSVGblogspot.com.

The top layer of the frame and the gear works are cut on silver cardstock that I then sponged with copper pigment. I also added rusty dots with E97.


I have to make a special thank you to a few fellow Tiddly Inker's for their help with this project:

Barbara - Forgotten Scraps; for always inspiring me to push my abilities. Her recent posts have challenged me try adding my own folds and creases to clothing for further dimension. She is ridiculously good at it.

Melissa - Melissa Made; for saving me time, money and energy by letting me know what her fave Copic #'s are for rust (E99, E97 & E09).

Donna - Popsicle Toes, for all of her wonderful and inspiring dimensional cards. I had to make a sculptural frame after seeing all of her awesome work.

Copic List (a lot)
House: 0, W0, W1, W3, W5, B000, YG06, YG11, E35, E33, E31, E42, Rust: E99 & E97, E29,
Precious: 0, R27, R22, R20, R00, V12, V04, Y00, Y38, Y15, Y21, E00, E000, E11

Casper said...

This is an awesome project and shows that you do not need to stick with convention to create a great project!

A project is the colours and style you image it to be and does not need to be as you put it Traditional Victorian colours!

Love your dimension with your sprockets and gears - they look authentic and rusty.

Thanks for the inspiration,love your scene setting too,it shows a different aspect and use for scenes in different mediums!

Have a great weekend

Big Hugs
Casper
