Steampunk Shadowbox by Dianna's Crafts

Hi Everyone, Dianna here with Gypsy Soul Laser Cut's Small Shadowbox and Graphic 45's World's Fair.  I decided to approach this project by using each square as its own ATC.  

I painted the box by using a Deco Art Bronze Paint then used a wood Stain to create a faux wood look. The first box I fussy cut the stamp and little tickets from Graphic 45's World Fair.  I used a stamp punch to create a larger stamp.  Behind the fussy cut of the second box, are beads that match (I used Beacon's 3-n-1 to make them stick).  The Steampunk Frame from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts was "painted" using bronze, gold, black and teal chalk inks.  The crow was painted white and colored with Copic Markers. 

I really loved the Ferris Wheel, so everything was fussy cut and layered.  I used chalk ink on Gypsy Soul Laser Cut's Fleur De Lis from the Parisian Shape Set. 

I used black and bronze chalk ink on a Gypsy Soul Laser Cut's -Wrought Iron corner piece and  Gear Shape Set. I layered the gears with scrap chipboard pieces and a clock charm.  I fussy cut one of my favorite prints from Graphic 45's World's Fair and used Gypsy Soul Laser Cut's Border Stick behind it.  The bronze and gold chalk ink was used on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cut's Word Charm - Journey.

The car and two tags were fussy cut out from Graphic 45's World's Fair and the car layered with Gear Shape Set.

The Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Square Charm (coming soon) and Fleur De Lis was painted with bronze, gold and black chalk inks.  The metal piece in the back ground was an extra and the metal bobbin was from a metal set that I had laying around.  The Graphic 45's World's Fair Lady was cut out of a larger design and placed in the Square Charm.

Facebook Challenge for March by Dianna's Crafts

Hi Everyone, Dianna here with a new Tag for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Craft Group Monthly Challenge.  The first of each month there is a new challenge.  March is a color challenge and it is Green! Anything Green! 

All you have to do is become a member of the Craft Group on Facebook and submit your entry.  The winning entry will receive a $10.00 gift certificate to Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. 

For this months Tag from the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts -Tags in a Box Display, I used Graphic 45 - Mother Goose for the Tag.  I then painted a light coating of white paint.  I then used a shamrock die, Graphic 45 - Humpty Dumpty and three different plain green papers.  There are about 50 shamrocks on this Tag.  I distressed all the shamrocks and used a light mist of waters to "shape" the shamrocks.  

I painted the cauldron from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts - Be Witched Shape Set and cut off the feet.  I then painted it black, used black and green Stickles all over the cauldron.  I then used a medium hole punch and gold paper as coins.  The Irish girl is a stamp from Taylored Expressions colored with Copic Markers.  The flags are from a special order from Gyspy Soul Laser Cuts. The Best of Luck was cut out from Graphic 45 - Children's Hour - March.

Thank you for looking!
